Since Monday, 1,223 have contributed, while 60,599 of our daily visitors have not yet given during this drive.


We have until Monday to raise the $2,000 we need to make our fundraising goal and prevent major cutbacks in our news coverage.

Since 1995, has been fighting the good fight against war and imperialism. We've been standing up for civil liberties, and for the old-fashioned idea that America is a republic, not an empire.

Was it all in vain?

Whether we make it or not is now entirely in your hands. We like to think that, over the years, we've established a relationship of trust with our readers: they trust our news judgment, and we trust their willingness to come through in times like this. Now we are putting that trust to the test….

Big cutbacks are coming if we fail to make our goal, and that's the truth. So help us avoid that by making your contribution today.
