“A free and healthy media is essential for society.” – Lynda Williamson, Editor News Net Scotland

Services:

Building on net media experience to stream interactive live internet talk radio and Video-TV.

Principles:

It all comes down to – “We are the People + Our Planetary Environment + Open Transparency + Freedom of Speech” – These are our core principles and our collective responsibility.

Our media service provider does not get involved in controlling content.

News content is provided by independent citizen journalism organized by local regional groups.

Working alongside a social change campaign network such as 38Degrees, people are ensured their freedom to contribute and report without bias.

An unbiased open media informed public opinion enables accountability of official policy by way of transparency.
