Efecto Cocuyo – Bravely Breaking the Silence by Reporting Untold Stories

Independent News Platform Uncovering The Hidden Side of Venezuelan Government 

Caracas, Venezuela – Feb 24, 2015Efecto Cocuyo, independent Venezuelan media platform, has announced their plans to cover the untold news within Venezuela. There is a growing concern for the lack of transparency and coverage on important matters by corporate media. Two reporters have joined together to bring crucial stories to the public and protecting citizen’s rights to be well-informed. They recently launched an IndieGoGo campaign, which is to raise $75,000 by April 19th. Funds will be used to support the paper and fund special projects for the year 2015.

The creators Laura Weffer, writer for the country’s best-selling newspaper Ultimas Noticias, and Luz Mely Reyes, Editor in Chief at Daily Newspaper 2011, are bravely guiding this campaign. The team consists of young talented writers with award-winning journalists. They hope to join together to practice freedom of speech and report journalism with integrity. Efecto Cocuyo is taking a stand against censorship in Venezuelan government.

This daring news media platform will cover breaking news about the challenges citizens in Venezuela have to buying basic goods, the alarming increase in poverty, and other significant newsworthy stories to keep the public informed. They hope to hope public officials accountable and also shed light on opposition leaders whose actions have set the country’s democracy back.

Efecto Cocuyou will use social networks such as Twitter and Facebook to keep up-to-date with current events, while using these social media platforms to share news faster. They are committed to report real news and restore the country back to the way it used to be.

Capital raised will be used to fund special projects and hire reporters to handle departments like post-breaking news analysis, strong investigative reporting, and comprehensive analysis of crucial content. They also plan to hold workshops for young reporters to promote integrity and accurate reporting of real journalism among aspiring writers.

They have already received fifty three funders. Be part of this change today by making a contribution at their IndieGoGo campaign by clicking here. Those who give can choose from a variety of attractive rewards as a thank you.

Please share this on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. This is an “all-or-nothing” deal, so if they do not meet the campaign goal the project cannot move forward. The more awareness and support the faster they can get funding to start making a difference in Venezuela.
