Why a membership programme?
In 2017, unhappy with the media environment in the Caucasus, Mariam Nikuradze and Dominik K Cagara embarked on a journey to establish OC Media. Their aim was to create a progressive, pro-peace voice — a media organisation that would report the underreported and give voice to the voiceless. A couple of mistakes and some experimenting later, we are proud to say that we’re doing just that.
But independent journalism costs money, and we believe in fair compensation and just working conditions for our small team.
That’s why we need your support — to survive in the climate we operate, and most importantly, to keep our frontline reporting free for all.
Independent journalism in this region is under constant attack and we’re only as strong as our members make us.
