We are ‘Citizen journalist’ our aim is to bring Left wing News, views and opinions to the wider public. Along with other alternative media newsgroups we are fighting to bring balance to the biased worldwide News and media consortiums that are run in the interest of corporations, corrupt governments and politicians. Mainstream media continues to maintain its stranglehold on the information and news controlling what is known or not known. Our brand of guerrilla journalism includes public citizens “playing an active role in the process of collecting, reporting, analysing, and disseminating news and information hopefully trying to make sense in what can be sometimes a very confusing world.”
