Why Media Partners?
Along with its partners, European Alternatives is establishing a pan-European network of media outlets, independent portals, journalists and activists, sharing the belief that a forward-looking media is key in framing political debates for an open, fair, and democratic Europe.
We aim to establish an alternative media network in Europe able to speak and organise beyond borders in what is still a primarily national media landscape. We aim to connect the already existing audience at the national level towards a shared European agenda setting. We aim to be the online space for a more connected generation of active citizens that engage with current events and social issues. We are engaged, which means that we challenge the status quo, raise questions and demands vital for democracy in Europe.

Krytyka Polityczna is a circle of Polish left-wing intellectuals gathered around a journal of the same title founded by Sławomir Sierakowski in 2002. The name draws on the tradition of Young Poland’s “Krytyka” (The Critique), a monthly magazine published by Wilhelm Feldman at the beginning of the 20th century, and on the samizdat “Krytyka” which served as a forum for opposition writers and journalists in the 1970s and 1980s.

This creates a new image: As a discussion offer, as a thought stimulation and so, as a call to action against unjust, undemocratic policies.
