The Independent Australia team

'Finally, news has a conscience.'

Independent Australia is a progressive journal focusing on politics, democracy, the environment, Australian history and Australian identity. It contains news and opinion from Australia and around the world.

Established in June 2010, IA supports quality investigative journalism, as well as citizen journalism and a diversity of voices. It believes Australians are short-changed by the mass media — and so it dedicates itself to seeking out the truth and informing the public.

Independent Australia believes in a fully and truly independent Australia — a nation that determines its own future, a nation that protects its citizens and its environment. A land that is fair and free.

IA is also opposed to partisan politics and supports Independent politicians. (Read more about this here.)
