About Us

CounterView seeks to reflect news from sources which are broadly "subaltern", a term coined by eminent Italian anti-fascist politician, theoretician and neo-Marxist philosopher Antonio Gramsci, who was in Mussolini’s jail from 1926 to 1935. 
The term “subaltern” has ever since come to mean “history told from below”, focusing on populations which are socially, politically and geographically outside of the hegemonic power structure. 
Recognizing that news of subaltern sections is a neglected feature of the media today, CounterView
aims to fill in this gap in some way. It differs from the so-called mainstream news, which reflects news from established power structures. 

Not supported by any organization, CounterView is a voluntary initiative. Most of the contributions to this site come from voluntary information sent to the site by grassroots activists from across India. Anyone willing to contribute is welcome to write to us.
