Budget for this year is dependent on them raising £10,000 from donations £10,000 Overheads Salaries Printing Shipping Non-profit organisation Operating expenses for News Corp. for the fiscal year 2012: $20 Billion!! (News Corp Annual Report 2012, p.14) Chris Cole - Contributor I think alternative media is a very important source of information. Our website is part of that alternative source from mainstream news. and occasionally we have the great and the good of mainstream news dipping into our sources and reporting that, which is good but I think a lot of people don't see that and we need to see more people use alternative media. particularly now with the advent of the internet and the ability to communicate and get information relatively quickly from across the world. PPU "Warless World" NOW! Staff What they stand for Style 1936:

"Peace news is a tiny operation" "I would say that by the standards of radical media initiatives the amount of energy that we put into social media is low to very, but I think that by the standards of radical publications its probably above average."
(Milan Rai-Editor) "You know the peace symbol? Well Peace News approved it" "Too Bold. Too Different" (Milan Rai-Editor) What image comes to mind when you think of the word peace? How alternative is it? They are falling behind the competition The lack of Media presence. To Conclude...... London Greenpeace came into action and their first campaign was against French Nuclear Tests "The relationship has changed with the mainstream media over the years" (Milan Rai-Editor) (http://www.my-newspaper.co.uk/prices.htm) 5,000 copies = £640.00 The price of a 1st Class stamp = 60p "Peace news in the 60s and 70s was seen as a significant media player."
