Every day, we at Portside contribute our best efforts at finding and sharing the most interesting and useful material we can for the modest task of remaking the world into a fairer and more peaceful place. We expect no pay -- seeing the material on Portside read and forwarded and acted on is reward enough. Once a year, we appeal to readers to contribute some cash to sustain the Portside infrastructure that makes our work possible. It may be the biggest return on investment you'll ever get. Please, help us keep on keepin' on.
Portside aims to provide varied material of interest to people on the left that will help them to interpret the world, and to change it.
