Why we do what we do

The way the media currently works is a stitch up

The way the media currently works is a stitch up

  • 80% of the press is owned by 5 Billionaires
  • The BBC runs scared of the government of the day
  • Tax dodging multinational companies pay for most of what we see, hear and read
Without a functioning media we cannot have a functioning democracy

Without a functioning media we cannot have a functioning democracy

  • Our public debates on recent referenda have been ill informed and devoid of accurate information
  • To solve the numerous problems that we face as a society (and as a species) we need access to more accurate information.
  • We need information that engages us, rather than evoking fear and despair
  • Ideally presented in a way that helps build consensus, rather than divide us

We need a way to get information that doesn’t depend on Billionaires, Multi National Companies or the Government

Why we support Indy Media

Why we support Indy Media

  • Independent Media – media free of corporate or government control – is the only real way to hold power to account.  That’s how we see it anyway.
  • The only way it can remain independent and do its job effectively is if we all chip in.
  • This isn’t only about keeping it alive – we need the independent media to become the key way we get information.
  • We need to build the resources for independent media to do accurate reporting, investigative journalism, comment and analysis, data journalism, culture and much more.  On a scale not seen before in the UK.
  • We can only do this with your help.
