If you’re looking for a definitive list on Latin America’s independent media, you’ve come to the right place.
Latin America’s grassroots media platforms are crucial to building social movements and resistance in the region. At Alborada, we often get asked about other grassroots and independent media outlets, of which there are many. The majority, of course, publish in Spanish or Portuguese but if you don’t speak either of those languages, there are several excellent alternative Latin America-focused media platforms that publish in English.
Below is a list of some of Latin America’s most important alternative media sites.
This is a work in progress so please feel free to get in touch with any that we have missed: info[at]alborada[at]net
