Dial (www.dial-infos.org) is a French journal on Latin America published since the seventies (ISSN: 1955-253X). In September 2005, along with a group of Latin-American associates, Dial’s team started AlterInfos, an ambitious multilingual and participative information project taking benefit of developing web technologies. AlterInfos pursues the same goals Dial pursues since 1973: to provide a Latin-American perspective on Latin-American realities. It just grew multilingual as articles are published in Spanish, Portuguese, English and French. It also builds on multilateral participations as collaborators are scattered all around Latin America and the Caribbean.

Our goal, as our archives demonstrate, is to provide you with non-mainstream, alternative information so as to generate and promote diversified opinions and analyses on Latin America. We cover a wide variety of topics: politics, economy, cultures, religions and churches, human rights, gender, environment, immigration and inter-regional relations among others.

To comply with this objective, and because we believe that alternative media should work together, we have created partnerships with other alternative medias and organizations such as Democracy Now!, Centre Tricontinental (CETRI), Volcans, Europa Latina TV… Thanks to the valuable information and editorials such sources provide and to the work of our collaborators, we are now able to massively reach readers all around the world, every day. You are one of them.

As new collaborators join regularly, our team is constantly growing, and with it, the information we are able to make available. Our writers’ cutting edge editorials prove that AlterInfos is an open forum and a space where all of our voices can be heard.

But that is not all AlterInfos works hard to promote. Because we believe in debate and in equitable participation, because we are interested in your experience and opinion, every article provides a forum where you, the reader, becomes the writer.

 If you believe in alternative media,
 If you want to strengthen a more critical stance to information on Latin America,
 If in AlterInfos you have found a space to bring your opinion to light,
 If you want AlterInfos to survive and grow,

The opinions expressed herein in the articles and comments are those of their authors and do not necessarily reflect those of AlterInfos. Insulting or injurious comments will be deleted without previous notice. AlterInfos is a pluralist media with a sensibility leaning toward the left. It tries to echo emancipatory projects and struggles. Comments oriented towards the opposite direction will not be published here, but they will surely find another space on the web to do so.
