The Observer is the impossible project, which was launched without advertising, without much money and with the audacity to be different. We had only one argument: our journalism, our work, our reports and investigations, our ability to innovate and create new products, our boldness in dealing with new topics, our courage in breaking with ideas made, our youth. Today we are visited regularly by seven million readers every month and we have become a central reference in Portugal. Today more than ever, it is all of these readers who make the Observer, just as the Observer contributed to making their lives as citizens richer. Not least because no citizenship survives without a free press, paid for by its readers.
