A group of our generous donors pledged up to $35,000 for our fundraiser, but there's a catch. We need to match that amount in smaller donations. We've been cranking out the content here at Antiwar.com and adding new writers to provide comprehensive coverage of the empire without mainstream media spin. Help us finish this fundraiser quickly so we can focus on our work.

Please make a tax-deductible donation today.
