Q. Why should I become a financial supporter of the site?

A. There's never been a more important time for independent media in Australia. With shrinking media diversity on the one hand and a transformation of media delivery on the other, there are fewer and fewer outlets publishing well researched analysis and independent-minded journalism like that found at New Matilda.

This kind of journalism doesn't come for free. We're asking readers to recognise the value of independent media and become financial supporters of the site. You'll be supporting the editors and journalists who make New Matilda happen - and helping to provide new perspectives on the big stories of the moment, as well as breaking new ones.
