A note from David Swanson:
You may have seen this article I wrote recently on ongoing U.S. use of depleted uranium weapons. It’s on dozens of websites, including my own WarIsACrime, but also Al Jazeera, Truthout, Counterpunch, FireDogLake, OpEdNews, Washington’s Blog, Z, and many others.
Guess what I got paid, in total, from all of those outlets?
But I can pay the bills and keep working for peace if you help with a donation, even a small one, ideally a recurring one to keep me going and keep me from having to bug you in the future.
You may have seen this recent television appearance. It informed a great many people about alternatives to war. It paid exactly as much as that article. In fact, I am constantly writing and doing interviews for nothing but peace.
I won’t waste a dime. I won’t give it to corporate television networks to advertise a campaign slightly less awful than another guy’s, because I’m not running for anything but peace.
Dozens of radio stations air my program Talk Nation Radio every week (also available online). It provides an educational service found nowhere else. The combined payments I receive for it total exactly the same as for my writing and media appearances. I have to maintain recording equipment, pay the bill for a landline phone, and put in hours of work each week. You can fund this program here.
I’m maintaining a website at WarIsACrime.org that provides resources and information to the peace movement and the broader movement for a better world. Nobody helps. Nobody pays. No corporate advertising is allowed. Check out the site and fund it here.
Or you can help me stay actively working for peace by buying my books on the subject.
Or you can donate through Paypal to david AT davidswanson DOT org.
The above are all ways to fund me directly. I’m just a person, not a tax-deductible charity. However, I am working part-time for WorldBeyondWar.org and you can fund this project tax-free. Whenever it raises enough, it pays me something. Check out the resources I’ve created there; I think you’ll find them valuable. For example, here’s an answer to the ever-present question „But what would you do about ISIS?“
I’m also working part-time for a great online activist group called RootsAction.org and encourage you to join and fund it.
I work in collaboration with a lot of peace organizations, and I always try to nudge the activism toward a principled stand against militarism and toward strategic and educational efforts that will move the wider culture in the direction of making war a thing of the past. I’m free to speak my mind, and to take part in nonviolent civil resistance, because I’m not serving any big foundation or 1-percenter. I am, however, relying on you.
