Social media are increasingly used for a campaign of disinformation, affecting the way people think and vote. A Parliamentary Committee has already met to discuss the danger of manipulation.
Our job is to go behind the headlines and offer a reasoned alternative to the many dangerous popular beliefs that are spread this way.
We want to share information that will help you Sound Out against those who seek to manipulate opinion, to resist in a rational and educated way. We aim to bring you intelligent reasoning and reliable information.
We hope to provide items you can share and help spread the word, enabling us to learn and grow together.
We have our own values. We’re a community of democratic socialists and we want to help you stand strong, be proud and become the voice of reason against bigotry, division and the erosion of community spirit by demagogues and populists.
If you find yourself confused or upset by a constant stream of manipulative images and divisive videos, we will support your journey as you work out why they are wrong and how to fight back, to know where you stand and know you are not alone.
Politics is not just about parties, it’s about principles. It affects everybody, and everybody needs to be aware of how their society is organised.
Please share our page, Sound Out when you know people are being fed lies and untruths and become a collective voice for the future.
