Dissident Voice is an internet newsletter dedicated to challenging the distortions and lies of the corporate press and the privileged classes it serves. The goal of Dissident Voice is to provide hard hitting, thought provoking and even entertaining news and commentaries on politics and culture that can serve as ammunition in struggles for peace and social justice.
Dissident Voice was founded by Santa Rosa, CA based writer, musician and activist Sunil K. Sharma in 2001. He did his undergraduate work in Music at Sonoma State University. He is formerly a researcher with the media watchdog group Project Censored, and is co-author of The Current Plight of the Kosovo Roma, a groundbreaking survey based on the field research and compiled reports of historian Paul Polansky, published by Voice of Roma in Graton, CA. His articles have appeared in Z Magazine, CounterPunch, Yellow Times, Palestine Chronicle, and Left Turn among others. He has also contributed essays to the book Left Out! How Liberals Helped Reelect George W. Bush by Joshua Frank. Sunil retired from Dissident Voice in 2010.
