The news on China can be dizzying, with blaring headlines about COVID-19 responses, sanctions, tariffs, war games, and secession movements. Now the U.S. press is howling with outrage at the news of China’s annual legislative meeting. But what was really decided there, and why is the Trump administration ramping up hostilities in the middle of a pandemic? BreakThrough helps you sort it out.
We’ll also be joined by filmmaker Eleanor Goldfield to discuss her new documentary “Hard Road of Hope,” a journey into West Virginia’s radical past and resilient present, in the face of dying coal and rising fracking.

At Breakthrough News we believe in the power of independent media. Five mega-corporations dominate the media landscape — controlling 90% of what we read, watch and listen to. They control the news cycle, to which social media and even most “alternative” media is forced to respond. We are breaking through that cycle.
We tell the untold stories of resistance from poor and working-class communities — because out of these stories we will construct a different narrative of the world, as it is and in real time.
People’s movements in every corner of the globe are changing history and shifting consciousness. But these movements barely receive any coverage from the corporate media. They need visibility. They need amplification. They need a media arm to break through.
We can be that media arm, but only with your help. Become a Patron and join us on the front lines in the battle of ideas.
