2007 - 2021

Supporting Independent Scottish Media

Like everyone else we’ve been hit by the lockdown experience and have to reach out to get support from our readers. We made a short film explaining the background and our thinking (see below).

Basically we want to strengthen what we are doing and we think that the coming year ahead will be crucial. The most reactionary forces in British media are strengthening their efforts and we need to push-back and resist the public sphere being flooded with disinformation and propaganda.

We are trying to raise:

  • £30,000 to support us to continue to develop independent journalism
  • All funds to go to our freelance writers and artists
  • Continue a rich mix of political analysis and cultural content
  • Support Lorna Miller – the UK’s only woman weekly cartoonist
  • Support our regular columnists and arts and culture editors
  • Expand our content to include our new podcast and investigative journalism

We know everyone is hard up from the coronavirus experience and we appreciate anything you can give at all.

If you want to support us and can share this link in your networks that would also be doing us a real favour.

    Was glad to do my part today–my bank immediately sent me a fraud alert, as it *was* “unusual activity,” involving as it does a foreign account/different currency. It took a little while of dealing with their phone trees to get it squared away…but well worth it! The bank can go back to being merely vigilant, I can still use my card, and–best of all–Bella has a donation from me. I didn’t ask for a prize because Bella is that: my favorite site on the entire internet, not only because I’ve learned/am learning much about Scotland, but also because of its wonderful mix of culture, analysis, and rightful/righteous passion.
