Oh, I can hear you now – "Another fundraising appeal? When will it end?"

The answer is: when we reach our goal. But fear not – because we're almost there. However, please note: almost is the key word here.

We've almost reached our goal – but not quite. And that's where success matters – in the margins. Because "almost but not quite" means we'll have to cut corners in an operation in which there are no corners left to be cut. (Yes, you might say we're "well-rounded" – but not in the usual sense!)

We are facing the worst blitz of war propaganda since the 9/11 attacks: the War Party is on the march – and who, or what, will rise to challenge them?

That's our job, and we're working at it 24/7 – but we can't do it without your financial assistance. We don't have ambitious billionaires, the "defense" industry, or foreign lobbyists footing our bills – no, it's down to … you.

Please make your tax-deductible donation today – right now – and we promise to return to our regularly scheduled programming. (Matching funds are still in effect – and go here to make your matched donation in Bitcoin.)
