About Popular Front

Popular Front is a grassroots media organisation that focuses solely on war and conflict. We go deeper than mainstream news in a way that makes important war coverage accessible for everyone. We’re not interested in agendas, political trends, or online arguments. We're also 100% independent.

Founded and run by journalist Jake Hanrahan, Popular Front is one of the fastest growing independent journalism platforms. With a small team and no paid advertising whatsoever, we started from the ground up with nothing. Thanks to our members here on Patreon, we're able to keep producing quality conflict reporting. We don't accept any corporate investment and are completely against media industry elitism.

We're also banned from monetising our videos on YouTube and Instagram (they don't like real life), so this is the only way we stay afloat.



The crowdfunding is all invested back into Popular Front. It pays for travel, equipment, team-member expenses, and will hopefully allow us to expand so that we can eventually hire a whole crew.

If you like the sound of this, support Popular Front. You'll get lots of extra content and will help keep the project moving forward. 

Thanks for all your support,
88% complete
If we end up hitting this then we'll start producing the "Bad Signal" series, which aims to report on the wars you won't see in the news. We'll travel to forgotten but active conflicts all over the world, showing you what's happening from the ground.
