What we're about

This is the Meetup group for Better Media (https://bettermedia.uk).

If you think Media Moguls and Press Barons have too much power and influence in our society, want to protect and democratise the BBC, would love to see media co-ops in every community, or just work as an independent journalist, photographer or film maker, then this Meetup is for you.

It was originally set-up by Josef Davies-Coates (https://josef.is/) when he was Campaign Co-ordinator for the Media Reform Coalition (http://www.mediareform.org.uk/) but became dormant when the funding for their one year Media Ownership project ended.

It was then revived during Josef's time as National Organiser for the Campaign for Press and Broadcasting Freedom (CPBF) (http://www.cpbf.org.uk/) and has now been handed over to Better Media (https://bettermedia.uk).
