De West

De West is one of the two main newspapers of Suriname. De West was founded in 1892, and in its early years was a conservative paper that had a somewhat antagonistic rivalry with the left-leaning Suriname, the other leading newspaper in what was then the Dutch colony of Suriname. The paper was forced to close in the early 1980s following a coup led by D├ęsi Bouterse, but was allowed to reopen in 1984, although still under some government censorship. As of 2002, it is the second-largest paper by circulation in Suriname, after de Ware Tijd, and takes an independent political stance. ()
