'2011 has been an extraordinary year for online content.
Global Voices has been there as revolutions happened, dictatorships fell, and network effects rippled through the cities and neighborhoods of our contributors reporting from around the world.
You can help our 530 authors do even more in 2012: globalvoicesonline.org/donate
Thanks in advance for your support.
