- Why donate? Endorsements of Venezuelanalysis by well known intellectuals, activists, and Venezuelans
2014 was a difficult year for Venezuela and the Bolivarian project, with the administration of President Nicolas Maduro facing a range of challenges. These included a wave of opposition protests and violent street barricades from February – May; the assassination of key pro-government figures including young lawmaker Robert Serra in October; increased diplomatic hostility from the United States and the threat of sanctions; and continued bias, ridicule and distortion of Venezuela by many mainstream media outlets.
A central issue this year has been the country’s economic situation and the government’s attempts to resolve ongoing problems. Meanwhile, a story largely unreported in the world’s media but covered by VA.com has been the growth of the number of communes being created around the country as community activists seek to deepen the model of participatory democracy.
During these and all other developments Venezuelanalysis.com’s journalists made an extraordinary effort to cover events as they happened and provide up to date information through news, analysis, audio, photographs and interviews. Our writers played a particularly important role in revealing the false narrative being created around the right-wing opposition’s unrest movement by reporting directly from one of the areas most affected by the violence, the Andean city of Mérida. They also produced a series of original articles based on first hand research, from indigenous issues in the southern Gran Sabana to the Social PreCop climate meeting on the Caribbean island of Margarita. VA.com also continues to publish the best analysis, videos and audio on Venezuela from around the web, and translate many Venezuelan and Latin American opinion articles and voices into English. As always, the aim has been to provide our readers with honest, in depth and contextual coverage of the events shaping the country’s future and to bust the myths built up about Venezuela by hostile mainstream media outlets.
Venezuelanalysis.com needs to raise a minimum of US $5,000 to maintain our operations, and it is through the support of readers like you that we are able to stay online. We are 100% independent and reliant on reader donations, so please hit the donate button and be a crucial part of the effort to continue and expand our work in the coming year:
Donate or become a sustainer now: For those of you who are based in the U.S., we have 501(c)3 status and your donations are tax deductable.
If we meet our fundraising goal, we hope to expand our writing team and fund writer’s transport to important events and their own in-depth research. We would also like to hire someone to translate English language analysis into Spanish. Other projects include developing more video and audio reportage. So please help us to continue cutting through corporate spin and bring you the unique news and analysis that you need to stay on top of on one the most important transformations underway in the world today. Donate now, and spread the word!
