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?

Readers, We Need Your Help

We need help. We need help from you, our readers. It costs money to run a site like this and with the recent DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks, as Jane noted earlier, the bills are big right now.

We have a terrific community here at FDL that has always been extremely generous about supporting us when we’re in need. And if we cannot overcome these technical hurdles and pay these bills, the DDOS attackers could be successful in silencing us and we could be in serious jeopardy

Dinner? Really, Mr. President?

By: Monday June 20, 2011 6:20 am

Imagine how thrilled I was when I opened my email and discovered a dinner invitation from President Obama, except, of course, it was actually an invitation to buy a raffle ticket. I’ve been mulling it over–imagining what I would say if I had dinner with President Obama.
