About Progressive Spain

FB_group_cover_logo_154x154Progressive Spain is an online news and information portal focused on progressive issues, activism and politics in contemporary Spain.

Progressive Spain’s mission is to deliver news briefs from a consistently progressive perspective on compelling issues, non-governmental organisations, activism and political events at the national, regional and provincial levels throughout Spain.

In the era of “fake news” and disinformation that the world is currently experiencing, it is perhaps worth noting that in the interest of credibility we:

► Source our news briefs from trusted, traditional media outlets employing professionally trained journalists, whether Spanish media or international news organisations with bureaus in Spain;

► Supplement media reports with information from known Spanish and/or global non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that are themselves sources of the news;

► Use a standard and time-tested method of “confirming sources” by only summarizing news reports that come to our attention from at least two news sources, whether professional media organisations or NGOs known to be reliable sources of the news we are summarizing; and,

► Link directly to those same original sources so that readers may click through to read the original reports in full and learn more about a given news story or related information.

In addition, we regularly provide information and links enabling readers to follow and connect with non-governmental organisations, activist movements and political parties on the broad progressive left of the Spanish political spectrum.

All of the above can easily be accessed through our online portal site, via E-mail or RSS feed subscription to regular updates and by following us on social media networks Facebook and Twitter.

Progressive Spain is entirely not-for-profit and the portal subsists with neither advertising nor subscription revenue. Readers and subscribers to our regular news updates may rest assured that we do not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties, for any reason whatsoever.
