SDP in Donetsk is privately funded non-governmental organization, which is managed by DONi Donbass News Agency and International Press Center.

It is a Western view of Russia,

without the anti-Russian bias.

 

The mission of this site is media criticism and reform. It was started in September 2014 by a group of expats living in Russia who felt that coverage of Russia is biased and inaccurate.

We received a huge response from volunteers, mostly in the US and Europe.

That the media is seriously malfunctioning regarding Russia is widely evident.  But the problem goes well beyond this.

The problem is media control by a few corporations and interest groups, and their close ties with governments and business interests. 

Instead of challenging, questioning, and fostering open discussion, they tend to promote those interests.

A free press is the eyes and ears of our democracies.  If it is co-opted, we citizens, and our elected leaders, cannot make wise decisions.

We are growing by leaps and bounds, and by crowdfunding and direct fundraising, and ever more volunteer activity, we will expand to topics beyond Russia.

"Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. If ye continue in My word, then are ye My disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

Alex Jones is internationally recognized by many as a trailblazer of new media and an icon of the burgeoning liberty movement.

In the spirit of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, Jones passionately argues against foreign entanglements and wars for the sake of corporate and banking interests. Jones avoids the bogus political labels of “left and right” and instead focuses on what really matters — what’s right and wrong.

Jones believes that informing people about the true nature of power, we can foster a real debate about humanity’s destiny and allow the species to evolve towards a more orderly singularity that has humans at the core of a system which is based around maintaining free will and integrity  – defying the transhumanist goal of Social Darwinism and scientific dictatorship.

Amidst the mammoth ideological clash between techno-authoritarianism and free human movements across the globe, Jones is a bullhorn for true libertarian principles and the empowerment of humankind in the eternal battle against tyranny.
