EMERGENCY MEASURES

That's what we have to take to protect the integrity and continuity of this website.

We are living in ... interesting times. Who knows when, or how, they become a little too interesting? These days you never know what might happen, and it's best to take precautions – which is why we're launching a campaign to get our own backup server. This means that, no matter what, Antiwar.com will be up and running.

But it doesn't come cheap. That's why we're turning to you – our loyal readers and supporters – to help us raise the necessary funds.

Purchasing our own server will give us the kind of independence required in an age when the government has extended its control over web-based media via regulation of internet service providers (ISPs). The PATRIOT Act gives Washington the power to spy on U.S. citizens, and stifle free speech, almost at will.

Another terrorist attack? Suspended elections? "Emergency measures" taken by the government to ensure "stability" and "order"? It's a scenario that, unfortunately, is all too easy to imagine. We've been holding up the banner of peace in cyberspace since 1995, and we don't intend to drop it – or have it ripped out of our hands.

We have a responsibility to continue uninterrupted coverage of the ongoing conflict in Iraq and around the world -- and we intend to fulfill it.

But we can't do it without your financial support – and now is the time to give it.


So far, 253 of you have given $14,235 – we've got to get moving!
