An Appeal from SocialistWorker.org

SW is asking for your help as the end of the year approaches. We're hoping that you can make a donation to help SocialistWorker.org keep going and growing in the new year:https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_donations&business=webdept%40socialistworker%2eorg&item_name=Donation&no_shipping=0&return=http%3a%2f%2fwww%2esocialistworker%2eorg%2fThanksDonate%2eshtml&no_note=1&tax=0&currency_code=USD&lc=US&bn=PP%2dDonationsBF&charset=UTF%2d8

2014 will be remembered as the year that a new civil rights movement reached a critical mass and returned to the streets. It was also the year of the largest (so far) climate justice march in history. And the year that Barack Obama launched a new war in the Middle East against an enemy that arose as a direct consequence of the last U.S. war. It was a year of violence and savage inequality--but also one where the yearning for an alternative was as urgent and obvious as ever.

And SocialistWorker.org was there, week after week. If you're a regular reader, you're sure to remember the eyewitness accounts from the streets of Ferguson, Missouri--and, as the year wore on, from demonstrations in New York City, Oakland, Chicago and other cities around the country. On top of that, we continued to provide an analysis that made sense of all aspects of the anti-racist struggle and many others, in the U.S. and around the world.

These are tough times, but we're asking for your generosity. If you can give a contribution to SocialistWorker.org, we would greatly appreciate it.
