As a researcher on indigenous mobilisation in Latin America, I regard Intercontinental Cry as the most engaging, professional and critical approach to indigenous struggles word wide. In my teaching courses at university, I have relied several times on material published by IC online.

In a media landscape made up of lies, flash, giant blind spots and corporatized sites of distraction, Intercontinental Cry is a trustworthy pathway to the truth.

While some media cover the occasional skirmish or event, IC alone examines the dynamics of the movement and the concepts critical to its success. Without IC, educators, organizers and activists would be operating in a vacuum of essential information and insight.
Journalist and Indigenous and environmental rights advocate
Today, as the diffuse war against the rights of Indigenous Peoples continues to escalate, the kind of reporting IC offers has never been more important. It reminds us that it is because the work, issues and demands of indigenous Peoples sit uncomfortably with those who ride roughshod over the planet, our common present and future, that they should be celebrated as widely as possible.
I think the reports published by IC are crucial for revealing and spot-lighting the issues which are rarely featured in mainstream media.

To my generation especially, IC is important because it translates the ideas and meanings of what it is like to be indigenous in the US and around the world. IC translates stories of people whose wellbeing may be in danger, of people who have unique stories and needs that we cannot ignore as a compassionate human race.
