About

INSURGE intelligence is a new crowdfunded investigative journalism platform, first launched in December 2014 by former Guardian writer Nafeez Ahmed. Originally hosted at Medium.com, we are transitioning to our own space to build a new model of independent media in the public interest.

We are pioneering a sustainable model of people-powered watchdog journalism for the global commons. We investigate power to empower people and save the planet. Our journalism is publicly-accountable, holistic in its scope, fearless in its integrity, rigorous in its research, and driven by the values of compassion, truth, and justice.

We chase and break the stories that no one wants to cover, and shine a light on the cracks between the headlines.

We don’t follow the news cycle: we are transforming the news cycle.
