Over the last few weeks and certainly more noticeably over the Christmas and New Year period, a mass-mailer appears to have been circulated to what must be thousands of personal email accounts.
Around a dozen of these emails have been forwarded to this site, as well as being posted to my social media by disgruntled recipients, the majority of who, are asking the same question.
The email in question is in simple terms, a request for donations from an outfit that may be familiar to many readers already, namely ‘The peoples Voice’,an organisation which first began broadcasting as a ‘free global internet television and radio service’ in and around November 2013, before ignominiously disappearing during the middle of 2014.
In it’s previous incarnation, TPV relied on an aggressive and apparently successful ‘crowd-sourcing’ campaign using the INDIEGOGO platform to raise revenue, and thousands of well-meaning people wholeheartedly got behind it, as it did appear( on the surface at least) to be a project, that was certainly worth supporting.
But as it turned out, the reality was very different, and there are people who genuinely believed in the project and worked at TPV as volunteers, who believe that the whole thing was set up to fail, a number of whom who have written about their experiences – the evidence of which can be found around the www.
The contents of the email is as follows:
WE’RE BUILDING A TRULY INDEPENDENT NEWS NETWORK BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE.
WHO ARE WE?
Hi, we are The People’s Voice – a group of passionate individuals from around the world who make content covering the information, background and opinions the mainstream media won’t touch.
How often do people ask ‘What can I do?’ in the face of the global descent into Big Brother? How often are ordinary citizens told what to think by the elite, censored on social media, and ‘debunked’ by the corporate mainstream media?
We aim to become a global television station funded by the people, for the people, with one simple remit: INFORM, INSPIRE, EMPOWER
We began in 2014, where a team of volunteers made a variety of online TV shows from a London-based studio, broadcasting suppressed information to the entire world 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Using the experience gained from that project, we would like to launch the second iteration of The People’s Voice, taking it to the NEXT LEVEL with your support.
WHAT SHOWS WILL WE MAKE?
With your support we want to give a voice to whistle-blowers, government insiders, and expert researchers across a variety of fields – we want to give a voice to all those currently silenced by the mainstream media.
Free from corporate interests that most media companies are shackled by, we will bring you news and empowering information from around the world that will help bring about a global revolution and help drain the mainstream media swamp.
The People’s Voice will not do censorship, and it will not be silenced by intimidation.
It is time to hear The People’s Voice – so let’s make this happen!
WHAT WILL WE DO WITH YOUR MONEY?
We will start by making at least two weekly shows on a variety of topics.
The more people who join, the bigger and more ambitious we will become.
Members will get early access to each of our videos, before they are uploaded to YouTube. They will also have the ability to participate on our shows, collaborate with our producers and presenters, and take part in shaping the network for the future. – LINK
In addition, for a regular donation of between $5 and $10,000 per month, those who contibute are promised a number of perks, which range from being given ‘early access to the shows before they are uploaded to Youtube’, (presumably for free) to ‘Spending a weekend meeting the team and work with producers and presenters to make a show. Each evening you will have a team dinner (you are responsible for travel and accommodation).
Sounds great doesn’t it?
If you happen to have a disposable 10k every month that is.
However, before anyone decides to hand over any cash to this venture, it would be remiss of me if I did not point out that ‘The Peoples Voice’ are also a holding company for an already existing online ‘News’ outlet, and one which is immediately recognizable to many people by now as ‘Yournewswire’.
‘FOOL ME ONCE, SHAME ON YOU
FOOL ME TWICE, SHAME ON ME’
YourNewsWire (styled as YourNewsWire.com) is a Los Angeles-based clickbait FAKE NEWS news website known for disseminating conspiracy theories and misleading information, contrary to its claimed motto (“News. Truth. Unfiltered”).
According to Josh Boswell of The Sunday Times, Sean Adl-Tabatabai (a former television producer) is the owner and ‘Editor-in-chief’. However, YourNewsWire also claims that it is owned by holding company called The People’s Voice (Incorporated), which is the name of their Facebook account. – SOURCE
