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?

I strive to bring an unapologetic perspective to the latest brazen acts of government injustice and impunity, whether they involve refusing to hold torturers or lying officials accountable or invoking secrecy to conceal crimes or misconduct.

If you appreciate this kind of work, will you donate $10 to keep it going?

Please Support Independent Voices, Donate To Firedoglake

By: Friday October 24, 2014 9:09 am

The truth does not lie somewhere between Fox News and MSNBC, it lies outside of the matrix of establishment tribal power plays posing as battles of ideas and can only be gleaned from hearing voices outside the orthodoxy. This is why having independent voices like Firedoglake (and others) is so important. Not because we have a monopoly on truth, but because hearing independent voices helps you see the full picture and find the truth for yourself.

So, if you are able, please consider donating today to help Firedoglake stay online.

Based on present conditions throughout the world, there will be more stories for us to tell, analyze and discuss. Our efforts led to excellent coverage of the Chelsea Manning trial, reporting on privacy, the latest in health care, how marijuana rapidly changed in its value and, judging by the efforts of our team, more to talk about.

Help fund our efforts to ensure the site can stay active.

Always Helping, Always Fighting: Help Firedoglake Keep the Lights On!

By: Saturday May 31, 2014 9:15 am

The idea that a series of DDoS attacks and a handful of tech bills might be enough to stop what’s being built here makes me want to quasi-roll my eyes Dogen style.

No way.

This challenge is small peas compared to what this community is capable of achieving- and that’s just it, challenges can be overcome.

The world is changing and while we’re encouraged to change with it; to acquiesce certain rights and to accept certain inevitabilities, the fact remains that there’s always more fight left in all of us.

So with that I encourage you to donate, to be good to each other, to rock the shit out of every day you’re given and to never let the puppy get the upper-hand.
