September 9, 2001: Two Days Before 9/11, Global Research was Born…

On the 9th of September 2001, the Global Research website at www.globalresearch.ca was born, two days before the tragic events of September 11.

We started up in late August with a handmade web design in FrontPage.  A student in philosophy gave me a hand in drafting the home page and putting the project online.

On the morning of September 8, I took a two hour “crash course” on the use of file transfer FTP software from a young software specialist, who taught me how to upload articles to the website.

THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE

Among our first articles was a coverage of the events surrounding 9/11 and the subsequent invasion of Afghanistan on October 7.

From these modest beginnings, with virtually no resources, the Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG) has evolved into a dynamic research and independent media group.

We revamped the website in 2005. From an initial bilingual English-French template, a separate French language website, www.mondialisation.ca  was established. We subsequently launched Spanish, Portuguese, German, Arabic, Italian and Serbian pages.

In 2005, we started a book publishing program and in 2008, the CRG moved from makeshift premises to a small office located in the historical quarter of Le Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal).

In 2010, we launched The Global Research TV (GRTV) website, which features selected videos as well as commentary, analysis and news coverage.

In 2012,  we launched our Radio program: The Global Research News Hour in collaboration with CKUW 95.9 FM (University of Winnipeg, Manitoba).

Since September 2001, we have established an extensive archive of news articles, in-depth reports and analysis on issues which are barely covered by the mainstream media.

The Global Research archive (2001-2016) includes more than 60,000 articles and news reports and more than 10,000 authors. Our monthly readership is of the order of 1.7 million (unique) readers. In an era of media disinformation, our focus has essentially been to center on the “unspoken truth”.

In May 2015, the Centre for Research on Globalization established the Asia-Pacific Research (APR) website at http://www.asia-pacificresearch.com .

APR is an independent media and research initiative with an editorial team based in Asia, the EU and North America, with correspondents in several countries of the region.

These endeavors over the last 15 years would not have been possible without the ongoing support of our readers.

Thanks to your contributions, we have also been able maintain complete independence. We do not accept support from corporate foundations, which are actively seeking to control and manipulate the alternative media.

We have tried to the best our abilities to provide honest news coverage and analysis of an evolving global crisis.

We have published articles from diverse perspectives to ensure that you get the true big picture of what’s happening in the world.

We are indebted to our authors, editors and correspondents  who have volunteered their time and energy to this endeavor.

On behalf of the Global Research team, we extend our sincere thanks for your continued support and encouragement.
