Dear Alternet Reader,
As the Outrageous Right-wing Attacks Escalate, We Need the Strongest Independent Media Possible
The outrageous power grab in Wisconsin at the expense of teachers, fireman, and of thousands of workers who provide essential services, is but the first round in a long fight we have on our hands. We are once again reminded that Koch Brothers-funded-elected ideologues will lie, cheat, and do virtually anything to crush people's rights on behalf of greed and the arrogance of billionaires.
So we have to fight back with anger, but with smarts and determination for the long haul. And we have to make a commitment.
Are you ready?
We need millions of people to be educated and moved to action ASAP, to compete with the millions of dollars the Koch Brothers are throwing into these battles. AlterNet's job is to inform, motivate, provide the essential information to our readers, and the paths to action.
We are entering into a new era of activism. We are raising money right now to hire an Activism Editor, whose job it will be to catalogue the organizing and protests underway, connect the dots, and keep everyone informed of the next actions to take.
Our goal is to raise $50,000, for the editor and in support of our staff. In our first two days we raised $10k, thanks to generous readers like you. We are on our way. But we need your help. Now.
Can you make a contribution right now and join the campaign?
