These are the days of “alternative facts” and nasty tweets as public policy, with the hard right in the catbird seat. They are also the days of tens of millions of people pouring into the streets to push back!
Serious times require serious journalism. The Freedom Socialist provides honest news and insightful analysis for those who need change and are putting themselves on the line to make it. Check out the latest articles. To keep the presses rolling, Internet humming, and lights on, please donate to the Freedom Socialist $100,000 Fund Drive.
Why give? Plenty of reasons! We keep the price of the FS affordable and have no corporate advertising, so expenses regularly outstrip income, even with a mostly volunteer staff. Fund drives are crucial to our survival.
And the FS doesn’t “narrowcast.” We will continue to cover topics ranging broadly from climate change to women’s rights and ending police violence. The next issue will feature articles on healthcare, disappearing jobs, sanctuary cities, and the European Union, among lots else.
These stories, written by feminists, fighters for racial justice, labor activists, and anti-fascist organizers, have information and a perspective you won’t see in The New York Times or even hear on public radio. They’re stories with a role to play in building a movement to stop Trump — and ultimately to replace the system that spawned him. The Freedom Socialist is available in print, on CD, and online at www.socialism.com, where thousands of people each week find bonus features including statements on breaking events and additional articles in Spanish.
Will you make a donation to the Freedom Socialist? Any amount, from $500 to $5, will be put to good use. Until the end of June, FS supporters are going to be dialing for dollars and organizing forums, rummage sales, raffles, bake sales, house parties, study circles and movie nights to raise funds. Contact me about how to get involved — your help is needed, and it’s fun!
