The Last Word…


In 2006 the Free Press Journal began online and changed into the National Free Press (Canada); the response was steady and surprisingly, worldwide.  People grumbled that we created a free press forum for Canada only and encouraged us to take this ‘open concept for free speech’ and make it a global entity.

The format was simple - a place for everyone to come together - all the political sides, all the religious viewpoints and all the cultural opinions to create a platform to help us understand different people, lifestyles and traditions, and to join in with other Human Rights websites with our contribution to a positive world.

The Global Free Press was the end result and was an advertisement-free, independent international online editorial magazine that was open for everyone to contribute to, no matter where they were from, what colour they were, what age or gender, which political group they belonged to, or which deity they worshiped or the one they didn't.  We created our own Standards and Policies regarding the material that we posted to ensure fair and just publishing.

And for 10 years everything was well in the world of the GFP, we were privileged to have an impressive group of writers and artists from amateurs to seasoned professionals who joined in as a Columnist, Contributor or Editorial Cartoonist all expressing themselves in their own fashion, with their viewpoint, on a variety of topics.  These articles, stories and images are a look into the world from 2006 to 2016.  

Eventually Business Projects started to get in the way of this hobby that had grown.

Then the world changed and it changed rapidly.

The rise of extreme right-wing groups, white supremacists and nationalists all bubbled to the surface – fuelled by political groups, right-wing media, religious organizations and a wide variety of hate groups and clubs like the NRA, KKK, Proud Boys, and Neo-Nazis just to name a few.

Using the Internet, these groups have managed to reach those who take information in easily without taking the time to check the facts and then that misinformation is quickly spread across cyberspace.  The “fake news” that you hear about is the real news.  Confusing isn’t it.

Their detrimental attitude to life in general and their blatant disregard for any and all human rights have set up humanity for a wicked battle of principles, morals and wits.

So the Global Free Press changed.

We’re going to continue forward with a different format to reflect the changing world by actively fighting the aforementioned groups by posting the best positive information that highlights the better accomplishments in our world.

With real - not fake: fact-filled information you can share with anyone who gives a hoot about humanity.

People around the world must continue this righteous fight between real and fake, with words, with conversation, with understanding and patience.  And ‘in-your-face’ arguments when necessary.
