Wikinews is a Wikimedia collaborative writing project to report the news on a wide variety of subjects using a wiki. Wikinews languages: English, German, French, Dutch, Spanish, Swedish. The (multilingual) IRC chat is on irc.freenode.net, channel #wikinews. On a semi-regular basis, we host chats on specific issues. These chats are planned here.
