Center For Media And Democracy

I had a lovely email from Rebekah Wilce recently who writes for the online publication PRWatch requesting the use of my 'Cracked Matador' watercolour. The metaphor 'a Bull in a China shop' was used in her article to describe a well used (in the U.S) herbicide where the China shop was you. I thought her cause a good one so I agreed the use of my image. Read her article here.

Finnish government to ban our organization? Helsinki district court was ready to ban our organization! An official had told this threat to our chairman in a meeting in the Ministry for Internal Affairs.

A government's threat to ban a peaceful organization (because of its opinions) violates the principles of democracy.

Ethnic cleansing in Western Uusimaa in May 1918 and Forssa region. Some 200 Finnish civilians, men and women, were executed by the Swedish battalion in Western Uusimaa. The Swedes executed at least 460 Finns in the spring 1918.

TV and newspapers broadcast disinformation about history and all political issues. Censorship in the mainstream media: Sweden, Finland and Norway are ruled by the political and economic elite.

In the Scandinavian countries the political and economic elite controls the media.
