Dear VA reader,
Venezuelanalysis is the only independent English language website bringing you a progressive, grassroots perspective on the Bolivarian Revolution. We provide unparalleled news, views and analysis on the greatest issues facing the Venezuelan people and the Bolivarian Process.
During the last 15 years, our team has supplied daily news coverage, written and multimedia, of the most important developments in Venezuela. In addition we produce opinion pieces, conduct regular interviews, and translate articles from the Venezuelan press to add the voices of the Venezuelan grassroots to the debate. We also produce podcasts, where our team and occasional guests discuss topics in more detail.
Besides our everyday work, we provide in‐depth content on important topics ignored by the corporate mainstream media, ranging from US sanctions to opposition street violence, as well as rolling coverage of elections. Since July 2017 we have covered National Constituent Assembly, governor, municipal and presidential elections – all with live interviews from voters and candidates as well as on the ground analysis of results and their implications.

Our team is also dedicated to organizing solidarity delegations to Venezuela, to allow activists to witness the Venezuelan reality for themselves and engage directly with Bolivarian popular movements. We have already conducted two delegations, the most recent one in May 2018, and both have been tremendous experiences for everyone involved.
Despite the major geopolitical dimensions and threats, we’ve never wavered on our commitment to provide readers with a left perspective that comes directly from Venezuelan grassroots movements and the thousands of organized communities that breathe life into the Bolivarian Process. Needless to say, this perspective is nowhere to be found in the mainstream media coverage of Venezuela.

As we like to remind everyone, Venezuelanalysis is 100% supported by reader donations. These donations have allowed us to support our staff, provide travel expenses for special coverage, organize delegations, and fund our website redesign. In the coming months, we plan on producing more multimedia coverage with in-depth interviews with communard, feminist, lbgtqi, Afro-Venezuelan, Indigenous movements, workers, students and more.
For all these reasons, your continued support is evermore necessary. If you have already given, thank you, and if not, please consider making a donation (*for checks see below). No donation is too small! If you cannot make a financial contribution, consider organizing a webinar, inviting us to your favorite radio program or hosting a solidarity event with one of our staff members throughout the year.
Every act of solidarity counts and we appreciate your commitment to VA and the Venezuelan popular movement.
Join us in continuing this work and standing in solidarity with Venezuela’s Bolivarian socialist movements and communities.
