Dear Toward Freedom Supporter,
It takes more than presidential elections to change the world.
- In Guatemala, indigenous communities just organized the first ever People’s Tribunal against the Canadian mining company Goldcorp
- Grassroots responses to the crisis caused by hurricane Sandy on the eastern seaboard of the US are playing a major role in helping people in devastated communities.
- Countless activists are taking direct action, from Texas to Canada, against the tar sands pipeline construction.
These are the movements and communities that will fight for a better world throughout the next Obama term and beyond.
We at Toward Freedom will be there, to report on these stories of hope and alternatives that the corporate media ignores.
With your help, that is. We need your donation to ensure our coverage continues.
We believe journalism should be for the public good. Each week, we provide stories and analysis guided by that principle, from reports on the struggles for peace and sovereignty in Palestine to the daily exploitation faced by workers at Walmart.
Our commitment to stories that serve the interest of the people – not domineering governments and selfish corporations – is the same commitment that led writer John Lasker to write a Toward Freedom article about the sexual violence against women within the ranks of the US military. That article won a Project Censored Award this year for uncovering a story that no one else was reporting on.
With your donation we'll continue publishing such stories that challenge the status quo. We'll continue to cover inspiring grassroots struggles. We'll continue to provide investigative reports. We'll create a media that stands in solidarity with social movements for peace and justice worldwide.
We can’t wait for the world to change via the ballot box and we can’t wait for media to change. Join us in creating journalism for the people, journalism-from-below.
Please make a donation today. Can we count on you?
