MediaNorth is the quarterly publication of the Campaign for Press & Broadcasting Freedom (North) which covers the North West, Yorks & Humber and North East of England. We also have supporters in Scotland.

We also strongly support alternative media, both print and online. Nationally we want diverse, democratically accountable media.
Independent coverage and critical analysis of world politics and current affairs — from a radical social movement perspective. The world-system is in crisis. Global capitalism and liberal democracy are crumbling all around us. Now more than ever, we need subversive commentary, engaged research and critical analysis to make sense of our tumultuous times and help stave off the coming global catastrophe. As an activist-run journal of the radical imagination, we consider it our mission to contribute to that collective effort.
Co-operative News, established in 1871, is the oldest co-operative newspaper in the world – and also, arguably, the oldest democratically controlled paper. It is published by an independent registered co-operative society, Co-operative Press Ltd. Membership of the Press is open to individual readers as well as to other co-operatives, corporate bodies and unincorporated organisations.
The New Economics Zine
The way the economy works isn’t inevitable. It’s run according to a set of rules that determine what its outcomes are. These rules are not naturally occurring things – we can change them. By changing the rules that govern the economy, we can reprogramme it to give it a new purpose. We can build a new economy that doesn’t just follow the markets – one which is purpose-driven and creates human and environmental flourishing. This is the thinking behind this new zine from the New Economics Foundation.
STIR started as an online magazine and has now launched as a quarterly print magazine that features articles and interviews on the international co-operative movement, the emergence of the commons and collaborative networks, and other community-orientated alternatives in technology, agriculture, food, sports, energy, education and other important aspects of our lives. We feature lots of original art from international illustrators and publish infographics on the themes we look at in each issue.
We are a reader-supported magazine and we are looking for subscribers to help us grow our magazine and build a strong financial base.
Corporate Watch is a small independent not-for-profit research and publishing group which undertakes research on the social and environmental impact of large corporations, particularly multinationals. We aim to expose the mechanisms by which corporations function and the detrimental effects they have on society and the environment as an inevitable result of their current legal structure.
Corporate Watch strives for a society that is ecologically sustainable, democratic, equitable and non-exploitative. Progress towards such a society may, in part, be achieved through dismantling the vast economic and political power of corporations and developing ecologically and socially just alternatives to the present economic system.

Resurgence & Ecologist
When Resurgence started, over forty-five years ago, it tackled issues that were only just filtering through to the mainstream debate. Articles were published on the endangered environment, renewable energy and ecological economics. E.F. Schumacher wrote regularly about the perils of chemicals in our food, the simplicity of Buddhist economics and the strength of ‘Small is Beautiful’.Resurgence continues to publish articles that are on the cutting edge of current thinking, promoting creativity, ecology, spirituality and frugality. While the corporate world advocates ‘free trade’, Resurgence questions trade without responsibility and money without morality. While our governments define the ‘national interest’ and their politicians pursue power at all costs, Resurgence argues for politics with principles. While technology invades our lives in the name of speed and efficiency, Resurgence advocates science with a soul.
