We're asking for your help to keep SocialistWorker.org going and growing. If you can spare a donation during the holiday season to help assure our site's future, we thank you.
2012 has been a year of revolution and reaction, austerity and resistance. Around the world, the rulers of governments have attempted to force working people to bear the brunt of an ongoing global economic crisis. But they haven't gotten away with it without a fight.
The particulars of the crisis and the struggle have varied from country to country--and SocialistWorker.org has tried to provide reports and analysis that made sense of them. In Egypt, we brought you eyewitness accounts of the return to Tahrir Square and mass protest when President Mohamed Morsi made his power grab. In Europe, Greek socialists provided a firsthand account of the challenge of SYRIZA, the far-left coalition that nearly won national elections on a platform of rejecting austerity.
Here in the U.S., we brought you a left-wing point of view that cut through the haze of the mainstream coverage of Election 2012. And, of course, our contributors were there at countless protests and strikes and movements around the country--from the wave of demonstrations against racist violence after Trayvon Martin's murder to the inspiring highs of the Chicago teachers' strike in September to the fightback for dignity and respect at Wal-Mart.
Keeping those articles coming day after day and week after week costs money--and of course, SW doesn't have any corporate advertisers to rely on. We depend on the dedication and commitment of our readers to make sure that alternative voices like ours get heard.
We have big hopes and plans for the new year. But we won't be able to accomplish those goals without additional financial resources. So we're asking for your generosity now. If you can give a contribution to SocialistWorker.org--no matter how big--we would greatly appreciate it.
