Watermelon Media was founded in 2017 by Elliot Crossan to advocate for a different politics in Aotearoa.  We believe that the current political and economic status quo is oppressing and exploiting the majority of people, and needs to be dismantled.  We advocate for a better world based on the principles of socialism, environmentalism, and self-determination as laid out in Te Tiriti o Waitangi.  We believe that social movements and the political left must understand the urgency of the crises of climate change and inequality that confront us, and move as swiftly and radically as possible to deliver the change that is necessary to put the interests of people and planet before the profit of the privileged few.
