Saving the Alternative Media

Facebook and Twitter just destroyed the ability for the alternative media to spread articles. In a single motion, hundreds of amazing pages with tens of millions of combined followers were wiped out of existence.

Among these are Police the Police, the Anti-Media, the Free Thought Project, and more. 

These websites and organizations put in years of work to show ordinary people what was truly going on in the world. 

They continue to report on critically important issues deliberately left out of the mainstream media, and to preserve what they have built in the past several years, they need our help.

This GoFundMe is for the creation of The Alternative Media Carrier, a vehicle to spread the articles of alternative media websites that have been censored, and help the alternative media stay in good shape through all the censorship.

The Alternative Media Carrier will set up shop in cities across America, like a newsstand for your favorite alternative media websites. 

Not only will we try to organically drive traffic to the alternative media websites, but we will do it on foot, the old fashioned way.

We will print out articles that are published every day, hitting the streets to give people physical copies of articles that will be increasingly difficult to find on those social media networks we have becomes so dangerously dependent on.

Not only can we put in work to rejuvenate people's desire to read physical publications and become less dependent on taxing social media, but traffic can be driven to the still active websites that no longer have social media platforms. 

We can help the websites that have been censored get paid subscribers who will support them through all this.

If we want to preserve this mechanism for spreading the truth and keep what we've created alive, we need to get active and start spreading news the old fashioned way.

If you donate, the money will go to:

- Alternative Media Carrier locations in cities across America, and hopefully around the world, where you can pick up a paper from a newsstand.

- Compensation for the efforts of Alternative Media Carrier workers, people on foot handing out articles

- Weekly donations to the alternative media outlets that have been censored by Facebook, whose articles appear in print at AMC locations

No matter what amount we receive to do this, the funds will go to printing out articles and handing them out to people on the street in cities across America and the world, and to the media outlets that want to join this alliance.

Hopefully we can put up news stands in a growing number of cities ran by a select few people, and donate to the alternative media outlets that no longer have social media engines.

Alternative description:

The Alternative Media Carrier is an urgent reaction to the massive wave of censorship that has just been launched against the alternative media.

Hard working, true outlets such as the Free Thought Project, the Anti Media, Police the Police, and more now have no social media engines to get their articles out to people.

The objective of the Alternative Media Carrier is to put in work, to rebuild organic, street-level, real contact between the people who read alternative media, and the media itself. Our objective is to help cement a culture of thinkers and readers, that cannot be destroyed through censorship.

We are going to drive traffic to alternative media websites online, and physically print out articles by websites linked up with us, releasing daily publications that combine all sorts of alternative media into one sizable, true chunk of information.

Our daily aggregated, printed out publication will be available at Alternative Media Carrier locations across America, with real people handing them out if we can get this going. We’re looking at starting with Houston, Texas, San Francisco, California, and a few other locations.

People have gotten a little complacent with the ability to use social media. In the past, people would go out of their way to visit websites and read news on their own, and people would get actual newspapers. We have to rejuvenate this collective ability to put in effort, when we search for information.

Contributing to a thriving, strong culture of people actively reading, thinking, and seeking truth, things that are deemed controversial or too conspiratorial for the mainstream, the AMC has been founded.

We invite members of what we call the Alternative Media to join up with us, contact us and we'll figure out how to drive traffic to your website, and also physically print your articles, to hand out in cities across America. The process of approval for joining up with us will be as minimal as possible, as unbiased as possible but with good taste and much thought.

While it may seem extremely uphill to the point of being futile, trying to hand out physical copies of alternative media articles in person, we take on that ambitious project with no fear, and nothing to lose, because this censorship just effectively killed any other option for these affected websites.

We're going to be accepting donations through our GoFundMe, and the money will go to establishing this central node of support for the Alternative Media.

All funds will go to spreading physical articles in person, establishing real, concrete readers of alternative media, and financially contributing to the authors of those articles.

The funds will go directly to paying Alternative Media Carrier employees in cities across America, who will have real conversations with people, as uphill of a battle as that may sound, and put in hard, first-hand work to building up followers the old fashioned way.

This is an exercise in preserving the culture we create and the structures we build, even in the face of all foundations being ripped out from beneath us. Sometimes that happens in life, but we can't give up.

Every cent of money donated will be accounted for. If you want to support a thriving, concrete culture of people thinking, learning, and reading, in the face of all the lies we are told every day, make a donation.
