Oz magazine, number 33 The underground press were the independently published and distributed underground papers associated with the counterculture of the late 1960s and early 1970s in the United States , Canada , United Kingdom , and other western nations. The term "underground press" is also used to refer to illegal publications under oppressive regimes, for example, the samizdat and bibuła in the Soviet Union and Poland respectively. [ edit ] Origins This movement borrowed the name from previous "underground presses" such as the Dutch underground press during the Nazi occupations of the 1940s. The French resistance published a large and active underground press that printed over 2 million newspapers a month; the leading titles were Combat , Libération , Défense de la France , and Le Franc-Tireur .
Alternative media are media (newspapers, radio, television, magazines, movies, Internet, etc.) which provide alternative information to the mainstream media in a given context, whether the mainstream media are commercial, publicly supported, or government-owned . Alternative media differ from mainstream media along one or more of the following dimensions: their content, aesthetic, modes of production, modes of distribution, and audience relations. [ 1 ] Alternative media often aim to challenge existing powers, to represent marginalized groups, and to foster horizontal linkages among communities of interest. [ 2 ] Proponents of alternative media argue that the mainstream media are biased in the selection and framing of news and information. While sources of alternative media can also be biased (sometimes proudly so), proponents claim that the bias is significantly different than that of the mainstream media because they have a different set of values, objectives, and frameworks.

The primary tactic to be applied is that food aid would be withheld from developing nations until they submitted to birth control policies:
This film (and the graphic on the left) was made by an independent group of people called Agent Provocateur Watch . It came into my hands recently, and having viewed the video, I would have to say it raises several interesting questions. It seems to suggest that the police are now using unusual techniques to arrest and agitate demonstrators.

A Freedom of Information Act(FOIA) request filed by Friends of the Earth (FoE), Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR), and the Nuclear Information and Resource Center (NIRS) has unearthed a shocking series of new evidence proving a deliberate, global cover-up of the true severity of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. And the unfortunate reality is that the mainstream media continues to blatantly ignore this colossal scandal. Private emails, meeting transcripts and other key documents reveal that both the Obama White House and the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission(NRC) were well aware of just how bad things really were with Fukushima from the early days of the disaster, but did nothing to warn the public about it. In fact, NRC and the White House purposely did not warn Americans about a massive radiation plume that struck the West Coast just days after the massive earthquake and tsunami hit Japan’s eastern coast.

Last night’s Panorama showed how giant multinationals, like Glaxo SmithKline are using overseas subsidiaries to avoid paying millions in pounds in tax. Watch how they do it: And instead of clamping down on it, Chancellor Osborne is relaxing the rules to make the shifty manoeuvre easier to perform. The pre-existing rules also protected the tax payable by British companies in developing countries.
