forviemedia: 2004 ~

This site mixes citizen journalism, polemic and images, a blend of (p)reviews, forceful views and image-led reporting. It offers a platform to a 'broad church' of progressive, political movements. In particular the site welcomes Links and suitable content from writers, musicians, photographers, artists and fellow (media) activists.

Nothing is constant but change. Links and News and Editorial are refreshed daily. A hit parade-cum-index, Pageviews charts traffic flow, new photos and our YouTube channel.

Forviews is a library containing over five hundred photos. The slideshow > highlights a selection from each of the nine galleries.

Driven by a world outlook, we showcase 'red line issues' and Green matters, hosting international news, renewable activities and climate change. Other posts - many addressing energy concerns - are archived in My Blogs or accompany photos in Forviews. Trade union actions, protests, demos, Nordic stories, defending the poor and vulnerable against austerity, protecting a wounded NHS and celebrating gains won by our progenitors all feature prominently.

Local threads focus on urban and rural isolation, dogs, walks, Nature, land reform, Aberdeen/shire Council news, planning controversies, public transport, nautical events, produce and products. Other posts try to tackle sport, archaeology, art, drink, food, farming, fishing, humour, techno tales, science, heritage, history, housing, welfare rights, education, poetry, books, exhibitions, festivals, music, TV, film and the stage.
