teleSUR Turns 12

On teleSUR's 12th anniversary we look back through the year at some of our unique coverage that makes us the alternative media from the Global South.

From Venezuela to Cuba to French Guiana to Puerto Rico to Syria, teleSUR gives a voice to those who the mainstream media ignores — or worse — whose reality they distort.

From an anti-imperialist perspective, whether it's countering the international narrative on developments in Venezuela or showing the roots of the strikes in Afro-Colombian towns or honoring the Cuban revolutionary Fidel Castro, teleSUR's original reporting sets us apart as we tell the stories from the Global South that others refuse to tell.
