Progressive Spain is an online news and information portal that provides news briefs in English from a consistently progressive perspective about issues, activism and politics in contemporary Spain.
Progressive Spain summarizes news from trusted media outlets employing professionally trained journalists, supplementing their reports with information from non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that may themselves be sources of the news.
The news portal mirrors the time-tested journalistic practice of “confirming sources” by only summarizing media 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.
Our readers are given the opportunity to explore the news further at the end of each news brief through hyperlinks to the original news sources in Spanish and sometimes in English.
Progressive Spain also provides information and links with our news briefs and through our online NGOFILE, LABOURFILE and POLITIFILE directories that enable readers to follow and connect with non-governmental organisations, activist movements and political parties on the broad progressive left of the Spanish political spectrum.
Progressive Spain is entirely not-for-profit and the portal subsists with neither advertising nor subscription revenue. Readers and subscribers to regular news updates may rest assured that Progressive Spain does not sell, distribute or lease their personal information to third parties, for any reason whatsoever.
