The NB Media Co-op was formed in 2009 following a successful New Brunswick Social Forum in 2008 in Fredericton where 200 people rooted in a variety of social movements gathered under the hopeful banner, Another New Brunswick and World are Possible. The workers, students, anti-capitalists, anti-imperialists, peace activists, indigenous rights activists, feminists, gay rights activists, labour unionists, environmentalists and artists gathered at this forum recognized they had one problem in common: the media in New Brunswick. Following the adage, “Don’t Hate the Media, Be the Media,” they did just that and the NB Media Co-op was born months later.
The founders of the NB Media Co-op chose the not-for-profit co-operative model as they felt it to be the most democratic model for producing and disseminating media. Free from the constraints of the profit motive, advertisers and state funding, the NB Media Co-op is able to tell stories on the side of people without fear of censorship. We cover stories from the perspectives of those ignored or misrepresented in our corporate media. We aim to combat the anti-worker sentiment found in corporate media and the effects that it has on public policies and the lives of workers.
