    I used to read independent sources like El Ciudadano on the web but lately it seems that even that media is becoming a shitty source of news, so I wanted to ask if anyone here knows about good news sites that have some degree of unbiased journalism (it doesn't have to be an anarchist site). So far I've learned about Telesur (but I don't trust it much) and El Clarin Chile among others.

    Thanks in advance for your answers.

    La Tercera! :ecouteurs:

    My friend helps edit something called 'El Quinto', never read it, but he's a solid dude so I assume it's good? And he tells me you can buy it at the newsagent too? Can't find it on teh internetz but...

    Anywayz, also:
    http://paismapuche.org/ & http://alianzaterritorialmapuche.blogspot.com/ for all things Mapuche

    I don't know, you darn Chileans are too darn insurrectionist ;) :
    http://hommodolars.org/
    http://ourwar.org (actually that's in english, but from Chile...)

    Rebeldia is the Zapatista magazine:
    http://revistarebeldia.org/

    also outta Mexico (Oaxaca) i like El Enemigo Comun (en/es)
    http://elenemigocomun.net/

    Otherwise:
    http://desinformemonos.org/ is good
    and upsidedownworld is good in english, i assume its Spanish section is equally good:
    http://upsidedownworld.org/main/en-espatopmenu-81

    There's heapsa others, can't think of them right now but...

    Thank you for the links Butcher! of all those hommodolars I already knew but didn't like it much and ourwar doesn't seem to be updated much and though desinformemonos and upsidedownworld seem to be good sites I don't see any chileans news on it, still the sites seem to be good ones so perhaps they can be useful for learning about stuff happening in South America, once again, thank you very much! :thumbsup:.

    P.S: I really wish chilean anarchists weren't so violent an insurrectionists in general...

    But if you blow yourself up you become a martyr! Who doesn't wanna be a martyr? Get a bunch of kids to chant your name and use you as a role model for anarchist revolution!

    Spend your life teaching children about anarchism anonymously or blow yourself a reputation that last decades? The choice is yours! :thumbsup:


    ---------------------------

    Seriously though, are aussie anarchists more pacifist? It is good to have the strength and will to fight but I don't see the point in mindless destruction, cause I think that only ends up with public workers doing extra hours fixing signs, cleaning shit and probably not getting paid those hours (or very little).

    we anarchists aren't the only ones who love a good martyr...

    yes and no, i guess...
    Not many anarchists blowing stuff up or whatever, but not cos we're all committed to pacifism, rather for more practical reasons, like cos there are fuck all of us and so forth...

    Oh shit that really sucks :( is it because there's too much represion from the state against anarchist ideas?

    Well you know what they say... better quality than quantity but hopefully if there's a way to teach more people there about anarchism then the numbers will rise, have hope! :).

    I'll retract my statement:
    the triumphalism on stories published on this site around the recent Peru elections, which in a few cases the writers note how great this 'new' 'left' Latin America is, and go on to speak about how great people like fucking Lula are/were, how Colombia is shifting left, Chavez worship, etc, etc, has made me feel a bit sick.
    Next they will write how progressive Lobo and Pinera are...

    Instead:
    upsidedownworld can sometimes be a good source

    I see, well with the Ciudadano the same thing is happening (though I doubt they'll ever worship Piñera), what's worse is that the journalists there as well as the readers seem to worship people like Peter Joseph and talk nothing but great things about the Zeitgeist Movement, and also people seem to idolize the newspaper and always agree with what it says, never questioning it one bit.

    In other words, the newspaper is breeding an army of fanboys/girls, which is a shame since it seemed to be a good place of counter-information on its beginnings.

    *Sigh*... guess there aren't any good sources of information anymore, thanks for your help anyways butcher :).
