Firedoglake Needs Your Help for the Future

By: Tuesday October 28, 2014 9:00 am

I am thankful for Firedoglake for giving me the opportunity to see what goes on within a movement after covering the People’s Climate March last month. As I walked along Central Park, I wondered where the environmental movement would go from here. Indeed, the question of “Where do we go from here?” is famously associated with Martin Luther King Junior in a speech given to the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in Atlanta, Ga., on Aug. 16, 1967.

I recommend the entire piece for anyone, but a point King makes at the end is essential in understanding the hardships and hopes movement activists face everywhere:

“When our days become dreary with low hovering clouds of despair, and when our nights become darker than a thousand midnights, let us remember that there is a creative force in this universe, working to pull down the gigantic mountains of evil, a power that is able to make a way out of no way and transform dark yesterdays into bright tomorrows…”

Would you be able to donate as little as $5 to $10 today to help support our work here at Firedoglake?

Please, We Need Your Support

It has been an honor to bring the newsmakers, authors and filmmakers to FDL each week so you can ask questions and to be heard. These are the people making the news, reporting the facts, and organizing protests, brought here to FDL to talk with you. We need your help, thank you.

Please donate $10 so FDL can continue leading the way on political and social issues.

By: Friday October 24, 2014 10:00 pm

Muppet LabsGhost Hunt. It is not just Muppet Labs that are looking for ghosts. We all are. The ghost of our democracy. The ghost of our Constitution and its protections. The ghost of an independent press. The ghosts of elected officials enacting the will of the people. The ghost of the rule of law.

Please Help Keep FDL Up and Running

The donations of ordinary citizens mean less and less in our electoral system as the donations of corporations grow ever more massive, breaking one spending record after another.  But those same donations are what keep us alive.  So as your email inbox gets stuffed with one after another entreaty for campaign dollars that will all too quickly be forgotten when corporate donors come knocking for their quid pro quo, remember that the day the election is over we’ll still be here doing the things that nobody else does, regardless of the winners and losers.

I’m Mad As Hell…

By: Sunday June 1, 2014 6:26 pm

You have read over the past several days that an unknown person or group has decided to try to silence the independent advocacy journalism espoused and practiced here at Firedoglake by launching DDoS attacks that bring the site down. You’ve read posts by several FDL’ers that describe all of the ways FDL is meaningful to its readers. You’ve read Jane and Elliott and Dakine and Kit and probably others I’ve neglected to mention on the subject of why FDL deserves your support. I’m going to take another approach. This makes me mad as hell, and I don’t want us to take it any more! These anonymous cowards cannot be allowed to prevail. It is just that simple.

Join me in chipping in to keep FDL going and prevent those DDoS forkers from the last laugh.
