With the vast amount of information that we nowadays have access to, it's not possible for an individual to sort out fair and honest information from disinformation and propaganda.
Search engines serve links to Wikipedia articles near the top of their results, but some of those articles are extremely unreliable. And when we look for better information, the choice is often between two extremes: more unquestioned "mainstream" dogma or "alternative" sites of doubtful reliability.
This new website is meant to serve as a tool for a community of people who want to be well informed. Together we can achieve much more while spending less time individually.
- With a blog (started February 2019). Recent blog post:

- For updates you can add yourself to the mailinglist
We will introduce a new method to arrive at a reasonably objective and fair presentation of facts in our Wiki articles.

In The News (or hardly in the news, but should have been):
on 13 January Julian Assange appeared in a London's court, after having been given only 2 hours to prepare his case. In an earlier court appearance, District Judge Vanessa Baraitser apparently took direct instructions from US operatives in the courtroom, as described by eye witness Craig Murray. Meanwhile Assange's health is deteriorating further. See also this video interview of John Pilger. [blog to follow]
The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet in November 'expressed alarm at the continuing lack of transparency about casualties and the treatment of thousands of detainees' after the violent crackdown of the recent protests in Iran. “Verified video footage indicates severe violence was used against protesters [...]” Bachelet said. “We have also received footage which appears to show security forces shooting unarmed demonstrators from behind while they were running away, and shooting others directly in the face and vital organs – in other words shooting to kill. These are clear violations of international norms and standards on the use of force, and serious violations of human rights.” Further, the UN office could partially corroborate 'reports that Iranian security forces used machine guns against protesters in Jarahi Square in Mahshahr – including against people fleeing the area and people hiding in nearby reed-beds'.
