forviemedia: 2004 ~

Blending narratives, polemic, articles and images, this site presents a hub to a 'broad church' of progressive movements, and offers a platform to musicians, artists, writers and photographers. Image-driven reporting champions radical resistance and campaigning at a grassroots level.

Nothing is constant but change. Links and News and Editorial are refreshed daily. A hit parade and index, Pageviews charts traffic flow, new photos, YouTube, My Blogs and media activism. Divided into nine galleries, Forviews is a stock library containing over five hundred photographs. The slideshow > highlights a selection from each gallery.

We publish news, (p)reviews and forceful views. Guided by a world outlook, we strive to showcase 'red line' and Green issues - international stories, the renewables sector and climate meltdown are recurrent themes. Other posts - many addressing energy concerns - are archived in My Blogs or accompany photographs in the galleries. Trade union actions, protests and demos, Nordic matters, 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 uncos, urban and rural isolation, walks, Nature, land reform, Aberdeen/shire Council news, planning controversies, public transport, nautical events, produce and products. Other posts tackle sport, archaeology, art, design, drink, food, farming, fishing, humour, techno tales, science, heritage, history, housing, welfare rights, education, poetry, books, exhibitions, festivals, music, TV, film and the stage.
