Upside Down World is a news and analysis outlet covering social movements and politics in Latin America.

Since 2003, we have provided coverage that addresses the imbalance of political and economic power in our hemisphere, highlights voices and victories from social movements, traces the impact of Washington’s imperialism, and takes a critical and investigative look at the region’s political landscape.

We live in and report on an upside down world, where the poor and oppressed majority of society suffer as political and financial power is concentrated in the hands of a few. Our media organization’s name is based on the work of the late Uruguayan author Eduardo Galeano, who wrote, “If the world is upside down the way it is now, wouldn’t we have to turn it over to get it to stand up straight?”

With a view, as the Zapatistas say, “from below and to the left,” we are a community of writers, activists, and editors who, through empowering and educational reporting, aim to flip the world upside down… or right side up.
