Dear Upside Down World Readers,
From the rise of Latin America’s new left to the recent changes in the Zapatista struggle, Upside Down World has been reporting from Latin America for over a decade, bringing weekly news to readers around the world. Our editorial collective and wide network of writers and translators operate on less than a shoestring budget to break stories and produce investigative journalism and analysis on Latin American politics and social movements you won’t find anywhere else. Please donate to keep this cutting edge media outlet alive.
UDW was honored to be chosen as the recipient of the 2014 Global Justice & Peace Award from the Denver Justice & Peace Committee, and is proud to join past recipients of this award including Father Roy Bourgeois, School of the Americas Watch, Medea Benjamin and Code Pink. Please contribute today to support our work.
Over the political highs and lows of this decade of reporting from Latin America, we've documented the ways in which Washington's imperialism has fought against social and political change in the region, and uncovered the many faces of empire, from spying and military bases, to covert funding and political meddling. Donate today to keep this investigative reporting going strong.
As an organization that is committed to the grassroots, we've remained alongside countless movements working against the ravages of capitalism and empire, as well the unique challenges faced when confronting progressive governments and their struggle for hegemony and power. In the area of extractive industries, UDW has been consistently shedding light on the ways in which the logic of resource extraction has been sustained from the neoliberal era into today. Please donate to support this alternative media space.
Our readership grows each year, and with it, new emails pour in from readers of all ages who have been inspired and oriented by UDW’s reporting. This alternative source and archive of knowledge is showing its fruits in people's activism, academic work, research, political and union organizing all over the world. UDW hasn't just reported on our upside down world, it has helped to create a better understanding about what a better world could and does look like. Please stand beside UDW today and support this work.
If you donate $60 or more, we will send you a gift copy of a book which is literally hot off the presses by UDW contributor Raúl Zibechi entitled The New Brazil: Regional Imperialism and the New Democracy (AK Press), translated by UDW writer Ramor Ryan.
Thanks for staying with us all these years.
