“…green energy, ecology, farming, and public transport – just for starters”

By: | January 16, 2015

Joan Scott writes about why she needs independent media, and sets some clear and important expectations for what it can and should deliver.

“I need The Independent because I need media which critiques the big grocery supermarkets and the virtual monopoly freedom we have given them, re our diets, and the distribution of urban shopping options. I need media which offers perspectives and data on green energy, ecology, farming, and public transport – just for starters. I need media which thinks outside the box of partisan politics. I need to hear from communities and regions well beyond the old overpass. I need to know what the Occupy crowd are up to, and the Idle no More movement, and the art crowd. Also I look for quality photography. So, everyone, GoIndy2015, join the Facebook page and send them a donation – like I did.”
