The Silence Breaker is our Android app news aggregator that brings together from around the globe stories usually missed out by mainstream media outlets. This will enable Android users to access information they might usually miss, learn more about the world they live in, and make decisions for themselves.

Note: the news aggregator pulls news from our unique Twitter feeds, and is selected from sources we consider to be reliable. However, there are no strict rules on this so please do decide for yourself which sources you prefer – and let us know your thoughts!

In the era of austerity, it’s harder than ever for independent media free from profit motives. Our volunteers do our best to contribute their efforts to maintain this website, the blog, the podcast and app, as well as raise funds to deliver our good work in the community. But there are still a lot of costs involved.

Our parent company is Libre Digital, a charitable organisation, and you can become one of the Friends of Libre Digital for the equivalent of just £2 a month (£24 for the annual subscription). In return, you’ll become a recipient of our exclusive bi-weekly newsletter which features hints and tips on media literacy, digital inclusion, internet privacy, and the latest information from inside our organisation.

Please consider supporting us and independent media free from vested interests and profit motives.
