     Global NetNews selects from a wide range of underreported news, analysis, and opinion from many sources on the worldwide  Internet.  NetNews is free, nonpartisan, noncommercial, and not associated with any ideology or organization.   The subscriber list is seen only by the list owner and is not given or sold to anyone. It is a one way list, but anyone may send material with a URL for original source   to [email protected] .
       The Global NetNews report is unique in combining current events with context links, topic pages in our Global Index that list thousands of links for background or research. Our crosslinked, alphabetized master index of links works for a quick lookup or in-depth research, with hundreds of topics alphabetized - people, organizations, issues, and countries.
      The general orientation is peace and freedom, sustainability and justice, but items do not imply agreement or endorsement since many are included simply to report what is being said or done.

     "There is a danger in separating, or even ignoring, issues that are fundamentally related... There is a tendency for campaigning groups to over-specialise, or to address the symptoms, rather than the underlying causes, of societal and environmental breakdown. This tendency, if left unaddressed, could scupper attempts to oppose and supplant the current system of economic globalisation."
     -- John Pilger, U.K.  in Private Planet

     "And it seems to me perfectly in the cards that there will be within the next generation or so a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing … a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda, brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods."
     -- Aldous Huxley, 1959

   "It is those who do terrible things under our Nations' flag who drag it through the dirt.
It is the people who want to pick it up and wash it off by correcting injustices who are the true patriots."
~ Pete Seeger, patriot and folksinger


     Information is everything.   The difference between domination and empowerment is the information divide.
     Just click on a letter and pick a topic for links to the most useful websites. Spend your time looking at what  you want, instead of hunting for it.  See the connections.
     Need background on a current issue?  Facts to make your point? Find a person, event or website? Research a subject for the other side you can't get in the corporate media?  This is an easy lookup for hundreds of topics, but it's also a serious research tool that goes beyond other references. Though it's in English, its focus is not the usual Anglo-American tunnel vision.    See the connections.
    Links are not listed in any set order or priority and do not imply endorsement.  This site does not promote a particular ideology, organization, or party, and is not connected with or funded by any organization.  It is a work in progress and does not attempt to be complete or representative of all points of view.
    Many topics overlap with duplication and crosslinks, because everything is connected and affects everything else in the natural world and human activity.   Yet links are selective to avoid less useful sources, and most are jumping off points to further research.  For convenience, most topics have live crosslinks to related topics.

     " I am astonished each time I come to the U.S. by the ignorance of a high percentage of the population, which knows almost nothing about Latin America or about the world. It's quite blind and deaf to anything that may happen outside the frontiers of the U.S..
     -- Eduardo Galeano, Latin American writer and historian
