forviemedia: 2004 ~

This site mixes news, articles, polemic and photos, providing a facilitating platform for radicals and serving as a hub for artists, musicians, writers and photographers. It incorporates Forviews, a library of over 500 images divided into 9 galleries. A slideshow offers a glimpse into each gallery >.

Nothing is constant but change. Links and News and Editorial are refreshed daily. A hit parade and index, Pageviews charts traffic flow, new images, YouTube, My Blogs and media activism. Reports cover resistance, challenges, grassroots campaigns, battles won, progressive movements and alliances. We highlight 'red line' issues - Green news, climate change, renewables, fossil fuels, global protests, international stories and uncos from Scotland. Uncos - meaning.

Old articles - many of which address energy concerns - are archived in My Blogs, or they accompany photographs in the galleries. We publish previews, reviews and forceful views. Image-driven stories focus on urban and rural isolation, walks, Nature, land reforms, local Council news, planning controversies, public transport, nautical events, produce, products, Nordic affairs, trade union struggles, defending the poor and vulnerable against austerity measures, protecting a troubled NHS and celebrating rights hard fought for by our progenitors.

Other posts try to tackle sport, archaeology, art, design, drink, pubs, food, farming and fishing, humour, music, heritage, history, science, techno issues, housing, education, pets, poetry, books, exhibitions, festivals, TV, film and the stage.
