Dear Friends and Friends,

Our site is designed to operate in an interactive and collective.
It is a tool of work and struggle against racism which is increasingly active.

If you do not have any ID and password allowing you to publish an article, you must register from the homepage of the site itself, and you will receive it by e-mail without delay (Do not loose it).

To publish your article, or a text that you’d like to appear, you must follow the steps that are quite simple (after a short learning curve anyway!)


You must first enter the Website in the "private area" (managed by the program SPIP).

Enter your "Login" and your "Password".

Once you’re in, make sure to be in "complete interface."

To do so, just watch when you enter the"private area" of the website ( on the top, near your name, you will see at the right of your name a drawing of the moon and sun. By moving your mouse over the icon (moon-sun), you’ll see "simplified interface" or "complete interface".
The word in bold is the one that is activated. The"complete interface" must be activated. If it is not, click on "complete interface".
By default the system is on "simplified interface."

Once you are in "complete interface", you won’t need to redo this each time.


Click on "write a new article" and fill the boxes like this:

— The sub-title: To be inserted in the "sub-title" if needed
— The title : To be inserted in the "Title" box

— Click on the magnifying glass icon, scroll down the menu until you get to your country and click on save. (If there is not yet heading for your country, send a request to fuyet

— After saving, choose a keyword (the language in which is written your text)

— If the original title is a text taken from another Website: insert it under "Link (reference site to visit ...)" in the" title "box"
— The link (URL) of the site which article is translated from: insert it under the hyperlink in the "URL" box:

— Insert the article in the large "text" box.
Add an introduction in the "Deck" box if needed (usually it’s in bold in the original article).

— The author’s name when it is not automatic: (you can only see it once you have saved your article). Click on the small black arrow at the left of "Authors". Under "add an author," scroll the names and click the choosen one, then click on "Add". If the name of the author isn’t in the list, click on "create a new author and associate him to this article".

Friendly advice:

Always remember to click "save" several times during the execution of these various steps to make sure not to loose your work if the computer or server bugs. You can save your work as many times as you want.

You can type your text into a word procer software (Open Office, Word, etc.) and simply paste your text in the "text" box.
You can also copy an article directly from another Website and paste it in the "text" box without forgetting to always put the link of the original Website it was taken from in the "URL" box and the name of the original author.

Once you have done that, you must of course save your work.

Then just above the translated text under the heading "LANGUAGE AND TRANSLATIONS OF ARTICLE" is writing "article status:".

Scroll down the menu by clicking on the small black arrow on the right and click on "submitted for evaluation". Click "OK". The team of moderators will publish your text as soon as it has been read to make sure it is not a a racist, abusive or malicious text.

It’s over. This seems long, but once you get used to it, it gets easy!

Good luck!

Hervé and Peggy

N.B. At the beginning, since you’re not used to the system, you can of course ask for help! The best, of course, is that everyone be able to use this tool as soon as possible. A considerable and growing number of sites operate as we do with the software SPIP. Your expertise with SPIP will be particularly useful!
