Starting in September of 2015 the project was put together on the Peter Loo facebook page and then in the “Together against the Tories” fb group. The idea is to create a popular and entertaining socialist hub with the involvement of as many people as possible from the left of the socialist movement in Britain. As the project has proceeded it has become increasingly clear that the media in the UK is run for and by big business and as such will always need to oppose socialist values to keep their position.
THE WORD will appear in all good newsagents. The plan is to eventually go to a daily edition.
The project was then crowdfunded to raise the money to be able to print and distribute this newspaper as a prelude to a whole cross platform media fight back. The first editions will be produced weekly starting on July 14th and will be launched at the Tolpuddle festival. At the same time as this “THE WORD” will go on to distribute to your local newsagent. We will also work towards the production of a daily edition. The politics of this project are broadly in line with those of Jeremy Corbyn and believe in justice, equality, truth, courage and that only by sharing as fairly as possible the resources of this planet will we be able to live in harmony with each other.
Too many people to mention have contributed their ideas but a special mention for Sean Jones who came up with the name which was then voted on in the “Together against the Tories” group.
