868 Media is an alternative media platform where individuals will find information on various Trinbagonian topics. 868 Media serves to explain and contextualize the complicated world of news and culture in Trinidad & Tobago.

Our operation is run on social media entirely and its success depends on our loyal followers who share our content and spread the messages we create.

Due to the globalized world model that is in effect today, the topics seen here cannot be limited to what happens within the confines of our borders. Over and over, again and again, we see that what happens in other nations is emulated here on our Twin Island.

868 Media does not cower to authoritarian political correctness which is plaguing the world today. Here, things are said as they are rather than as they “should be said”.

The views expressed by 868 Media contributors are theirs only. The content and opinions here are in NO way connected to any other entity, be it political, media related, corporate, or governmental.

The entire operation is in your hands.

– James.
