Pambazuka is an independent, progressive publication covering the news in many countries in Africa and the diaspora. It is overseen by Firoze Menji of Fahamu Networks for Social Justice, who has been careful not to become beholden to or dependent on big corporations.
The reportage is upbeat, and positively inspirational. The subject matter goes from the latest events in Kenya to, environmental justice in Nigeria, to Zimbabwe youth protest in London, as well as art therapy with children in Uganda, to get well soon comrade Castro and much more.
The site contains enlightening podcasts and videocasts with the promise of more to come.
For a real close look at pan African grassroots, Pambazuka is an excellent place to start.
