You may have noticed. We are running our annual fundraiser.
You scrolled right past it, eh? Please don't.
We only make you go through this ordeal once a year.
Week after week we give you the best writers on the international left: Michael Hudson, Diana Johnstone, Robin DG Kelley, Paul Street, Mike Whitney, Eric Draitser. Writers who are knowledgeable, penetrating and funny.
To single out these writers out is not to belittle our other regular contributors. And if you're a regular reader you'll know them and you'll also know all the surprising new voices you meet on our site. They come from every quarter, because they're aware, like you, that this is where interesting radical and independent minds meet and where they combine in the true spirit of resistance to the dead grip of conventional thought and politics-as-usual.
We need your donation, whatever you can afford. If we don't make our target, we'll have to cut back our operations. Do you want that to happen, just on the edge of a new era?

James Baldwin: "The civilized have created the wretched, quite coldly and deliberately, and do not intend to change the status quo; are responsible for their slaughter and enslavement; rain down bombs on defenseless children whenever and wherever they decide that their "vital interests" are menaced, and think nothing of torturing a man to death: these people are not to be taken seriously when they speak of the "sanctity" of human life, or the "conscience" of the civilized world."
