Dear Upside Down World Readers,

Upside Down World’s tenth year publishing has witnessed a series of dramatic political and social changes in Latin America, events which have shifted the balance of power between social movements and governments, and further tipped the region against US imperialism. We started reporting on popular rebellions and political change in Latin America in 2003, and today that focus continues as we follow the widespread grassroots resistance to extractive industries, from Guatemala to Peru, and the regional revolt against Washington’s spying. In order to keep going strong beyond our 10th year, we need your help. Please make a donation today!

The struggle for a better world requires a better media, and Upside Down World’s accompaniment of social movements, analysis from below, and reporting from the street barricades has always been oriented by the struggle for global justice. Lately, we have been able to provide you with report backs from the Zapatista school this summer, analysis of the re-militarizing of the police in Honduras, articles on social movement struggles in Guatemala, accounts of resistance to extractive capitalism in Peru, along with other articles, photo essays and an increasing number of translations. To support this work , click here to donate!

Upside Down World remains a 100% reader-funded, collectively-run media organization, and we could not have continued operating over these past ten years without the financial contributions, moral support and enthusiasm of our readers. Please consider making a donation today to help us continue publishing for another decade and more! You can make a one-time donation, or donate monthly as a sustainer.

Thank you for making Upside Down World possible!

What UDW writers have to say about Upside Down World:

“As you know, the 1% does not only control the world's wealth, but also have in their hands the majority of the media. … Upside Down World is part of the enormous movement of the 99%. Supporting them is a way of supporting ourselves, those of us who do not want a Wall Street-world.” – Raúl Zibechi, Uruguayan journalist and political theorist

"A much-needed news source run by folks with refreshingly solid principles. Highly deserving of your money!" - Belén Fernández, author of The Imperial Messenger: Thomas Friedman at Work

Upside Down World is a critical source of original reporting in English on the Americas, from Mapuche territory to the US-Mexico border. Please, dig deep and give generously  today!” -Dawn Paley, journalist

“For years, Upside Down World has covered inspiring events from around Latin America, providing insight to readers about resistance to the Washington Consensus and neoliberal hegemony. Now, more than ever, we need to continue to report on important human rights struggles, labor justice issues, and social movements. Please continue to support a vital source of analysis and reporting committed to social justice.” Marie Trigona, journalist

"UDW fills a necessary and extremely valuable space where well-developed independent reportage on Latin America are published, compiled and can be quickly accessed. It is one of my most reliable research sources, in addition to a very important publishing platform." -James Rodríguez, Photojournalist,

"UDW is an indispensable resource for those on the Left trying to come to grips with contemporary Latin American Politics from the ground up. Incisive, careful, and non-dogmatic, the reportage found on this site has few parallels in the anglo-sphere of the internet. Always on side with those on the bottom, this is a critical resource for popular movements wanting to turn this world of oppression and exploitation on its head."
-Jeffrey Webber, Author of From Rebellion to Reform in Bolivia: Class Struggle, Indigenous Liberation, and the Politics of Evo Morales

"Upside Down World combines a grassroots ethos with some of the most consistently brilliant reporting available on Latin America, and the former enables the latter. Our donations to Upside Down World go beyond supporting the site - when we help to make possible the necessary analysis that UDW publishes on politics, the environment, U.S. and neoliberal imperialism and more in Latin America, we engage in an act of radical solidarity." - Adrienne Pine, author of Working Hard, Drinking Hard: On Violence and Survival in Honduras, teaches Anthropology at American University

"In my experience, UDW has been extremely supportive of new and emerging writers with important stories to tell. Going beyond Latin American news written from the outside about political developments in the international spotlight, UDW has been a consistent source of on-site reporting from the ground up. I would encourage everyone to pitch in so that the amplification of voices of communities and grassroots movements throughout the hemisphere can continue." - Sandra Cuffe, journalist

“I appreciate UDW for its grassroots perspectives on political developments in Latin America. I rely on its reporting to keep current with social movement activism. UDW delves well beyond simplistic stereotypes to give us a complex and probing perspective on current events.” Marc Becker, author of Indians and Leftists in the Making of Ecuador's Modern Indigenous Movements and Pachakutik: Indigenous Movements and Electoral Politics in Ecuador


"If the world is upside down the way it is now, wouldn't we have to turn it over to get it to stand up straight?" -Eduardo Galeano
