Fight Back! News is a news website and bi-monthly publication founded in 1998 and based in the United States. It publishes articles and commentary on a variety of topics, including the antiwar movement, the labor movement, the African-American movement, the Chicano movement, and others. It has a left-wing editorial stance, and commonly features authors and commentators that are thought to be close to the Freedom Road Socialist Organization but this is not an absolute rule.
Editorial stance and "Where We Stand"
As the website's "About Us" section states,
This newspaper exists to build the people's struggle! We provide coverage and analysis of some of the key battles facing working and low-income people.
We are not "neutral" or "even-handed" in our coverage. We are opposed to exploitation, discrimination, and oppression. We hold that the rich class of people who run the economy and government of this country are unfit to rule. We support all movements that challenge their power and privilege.
The writers and staff of Fight Back! are activists and organizers - in the trade unions, low-income community, oppressed nationality movements, on the campuses, and in other people's movements. We welcome articles, letters, comments and criticisms. Some of us working to put out this paper are members of Freedom Road Socialist Organization. Articles represent the views of the people and organizations that author them.
Fight Back!'s website began in 1999. It was initially contained on Freedom Road Socialist Organization's website http://frso.org, and was soon after moved to its own website, http://fightbacknews.org. Fight Back! News website initially functioned as an online version of exactly what appeared in the print version of the newspaper. Around 2005, the website began to be more frequently updated, and also to carry some articles that do not appear in the print version of the newspaper. As of 2013, the website generally had new articles and content daily. The newspaper began to feature more analyses and commentaries on current events, and in 2012, Fight Back! News began carrying movie reviews.
