I'm really pleased to be able to support the excellent Meteor with this initiative. They consistently carry the truly important news that is either not carried elsewhere or else is eclipsed by the welter of trivia and irrelevancies in the mainstream media. Good luck with the media co-op!

Great cause. A strong democracy requires an independant media, especially one that is close enough to the people and willing to speak up.

There are no 'non-dom billionaires who don't pay tax in the UK & enable the Fascists to rise', in my family, so I'm naturally interested.

Very happy to support independent media in Manchester. The Meteor is doing excellent work increasing the diversity of stories told in the region and their journalism training workshops increase the range of voices telling those stories.

Claire Stocks 17th August 2019

Manchester desperately needs independent journalism and the Meteor also offers training and wider socially just activities - a force for good in the city

Conrad Bower 13th August 2019

Manchester's media needs a greater diversity of stories, and a wider range of voices telling them. I want to be one of those voices telling the stories that need telling.
