About us

The Orinoco Tribune is an independent outlet created in 2018 and specially designed to provide relevant progressive information about Venezuela or related to Venezuela in the form of news articles and opinion pieces for English speakers around the world.

Our objective is to curate and translate from Spanish to English the most relevant pieces that we can access. Our aim is to provide an accurate approach to Venezuela’s reality without all the bias you find about our country in mass media.

We are a group of Venezuelans embracing progressive causes. Living a big part of our lives in the U.S. and Europe made us understand the need for information in other parts of the world and also for context about Venezuelans.

The Orinoco Tribune will defend the causes of the less privileged, the working class, the peasant movements, the anti-imperialists and those that have been denied access to the media.

We are trying to rescue all the information and debates that usually do not reach the exterior world due the lack of translation and the blockade against our country. Currently we are creating our own content and expect to expand in the future, always imprinting our perspective as Venezuelans to all our pieces.
