Venezuelanalysis.com is an independent website produced by individuals who are dedicated to disseminating news and analysis about the current political situation in Venezuela.
The site's main objective is to provide a counter-narrative to mainstream media coverage of the Bolivarian Revolution, based on the perspective of leftist and grassroots movements in Venezuela. We aim to cover daily news about Venezuela, as well as to contextualize these developments with in-depth analysis and background information. The site is targeted towards activists, academics, journalists, intellectuals, policy makers from different countries, and the general public.
While the site publishes opinion articles, we also aim to produce the most accurate and fact-based news available on Venezuela. Our goal is to be the primary resource for information and analysis on the country in the English language.
Venezuelanalysis.com is a project of Venezuela Analysis, Inc., which is registered as a non-profit organization in New York State and of the Fundación para la Justicia Económica Global, which is a foundation that is registered in Caracas, Venezuela.
Since our resources are limited, we need and welcome any and all donations so that we can continue to provide high quality news and analysis about Venezuela. We depend 100% on reader donations and receive no funding from any governments.
The website started out in Caracas, Venezuela, in mid-2003, but as of early 2008 its writers are all working on the site from different parts of Venezuela and around world.
We welcome article submissions, but will only post them if they meet our editorial aims and standards.
Similarly, we welcome submissions of original photography and videos.
