forviemedia: 2004 ~

This website mixes news, articles, polemic and photos, mice and shutters clicking to capture pivotal moments in time not wasted. The site provides a platform for radicalism: it serves as a hub for musicians, writers and artists, and incorporates Forviews, a library with 500 images divided into nine galleries. The slideshow > offers a glimpse into each gallery. Unless credited otherwise, all photography and words © Chris Ramsey.

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, blogs and media activism. Content covers how we resist, progressive movements, battles won and grassroots campaigns. We highlight 'red line' issues - Green, climate change, renewable and fossil fuel news, protests, Scottish affairs and international stories.

Archived posts - several addressing energy concerns - are in Blogs or accompany the photos in the galleries. We curate portals to challenge and facilitate; publishing reports, news, previews, reviews, forceful views. Image-led posts feature urban and rural isolation, walks, Nature, land reform, planning controversies, public transport, Nordic affairs, nautical events, produce and products, trade union struggles, defending the vulnerable in battles against austerity measures, how we protect a troubled NHS, and celebrating rights hard fought for by our progenitors. Other writing tries to tackle a diversity of matters - sport, art and design, archaeology, drink, pubs, food, farming, fishing, humour, music, heritage, history, science, techno issues, pets, housing, education, poetry, books, exhibitions, festivals, TV, film and the stage.
