Fahamu publishes the prize-winning weekly electronic news and information forum for social justice in Africa, Pambazuka News. It is produced by a pan-African community of some 1,500 citizens and organisations – academics, policy makers, social activists, women's organisations, civil society organisations, writers, artists, poets, bloggers and commentators.

What you say about Pambazuka News

'Pambazuka News has, in the short time of its existence, carved a niche for itself as an important forum where Africans talk frankly among themselves and reflect on the condition of their continent and its place in the new global order. For far too long Africa and Africans were pushed to the margin of global discourse. Others spoke for them, very often misrepresenting and distorting the reality to suit their own interests. No longer, and this is thanks to Pambazuka and its team of writers, analysts and editors.'

Dr Ike Okonta, Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Oxford

'Go to Pambazuka News at www.pambazuka.org, a site with sharp intellectual and political debates by Africans and you can see the Africa which is unfolding. They are already speaking for themselves and doing it for themselves.'
Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, The Independent

'Pambazuka News has become one of the best references on African matters.'
Dembe Moussa Dembélé, Director of the Forum for African Alternatives

'Pambazuka News is a vital link for analysts and advocates committed to justice for Africa. It has become a one-stop-shop, giving voice to the vision and activism of social movements that strive for an empowered Africa and a better world.'
Emira Woods, Co-director of Foreign Policy In Focus at the Institute for Policy Studies, Washington DC

'In a time when we are in dire need of accurate news and perspectives on Africa, Pambazuka fills that void. Full of insight, sharp analysis and thoughtful articles, Pambazuka is a must resource for anyone interested in up-to-date debates and truths about the most critical issues affecting the continent. The importance of news from the voices of Africans cannot be underestimated.'
Muadi Mukenge, Global Fund for Women

'Authoritative, informative and resourceful, Pambazuka is the pulse of Africa.'
Eva Dadrian, Sudan analyst, BBC Network Africa

'…bridging the gap that had been keeping scholars, activists and policy makers apart for too long. Because many researchers write for it Pambazuka News brings research to public issues.'
Ebrima Sall, research director, CODESRIA, Senegal

'Pambazuka has become such a critical tool of knowledge gathering, advocacy, social justice [and] empowerment in Zimbabwe. Thank you.'
Janah Ncube, Zimbabwe
