Asking for Your Support and Solidarity - Our Annual Appeal for Contributions
Dear Portside reader,
Just once a year we appeal to you to contribute to make it possible to continue this work. Please help.
And because information is power, in addition to addressing the Big Picture, we are always trying to make what we present easy to read. If you're reading this in an email, notice how the type is better and the display adjusts to your device. We invite you to visit the Portside website, where you'll find lots of suggestions of related and popular material. If you're viewing this on the Portside website, notice that it's brighter and more readable. And we invite you to sign up for Portside Snapshot -- an email daily summary of new material.
It's been an extraordinary year. A year of unparalleled dangers, which we won't dwell on, as you know them well. Also a year that people asserted themselves in ways that were impossible to ignore -- from athletes kneeling to women speaking out to voters flipping seats up and down the ballot.
We view Portside as a part of this community of resistance and demand for change. We work to forge an alternative to the dystopia that unchecked capitalism offers. The resistance becomes stronger as we share experiences in today's struggles and articulate a vision of a radically better future.
We moderators of Portside work on an entirely volunteer basis. More precisely, we work with the same motivation that powers the grassroots of every movement for radical change. Every day we find satisfaction in contributing to the struggle for a just society, because we find the inequality and injustices of the present are intolerable.
We value you -- our readers -- as people who are engaged in this search for the way forward with us, who think critically and independently and who act to change the world in a multitude of different ways.
Today we're asking you to take an action that will help us to keep the Portside project moving ahead. Please donate.
Yours in struggle,
