Our most important fundraising drive of the year is now underway. After you're done reading, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to ensure that In These Times can continue publishing in the year ahead.

As I work on a few deadline pieces, here are some good websites to check out:Iraq Veterans Against the War -- This is a group of veterans of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq who are supporting a withdrawal of US troops. I'm not quite sure if that's the best policy, but I haven't watched people getting shot at and killed. A random thought: how devastating would it be to make TV ads with Iraq war veterans lambasting Bush for the deception about WMD and absolute lack of planning for the occupation?Operation Truth -- An officially non-partisan organization started by Iraq war veteran Paul Rieckhoff committed to giving voice to soldiers' grievances.Labor Blog -- Since it's essentially impossible to get the mainstream media to cover labor issues in anything remotely resembling a sustained manner, this new blog should be indispensable. There are a TON of labor issues at stake in this election, not the least among them overtime.

Support progressive media

As a nonprofit, reader-supported publication, In These Times depends on donations from people like you to continue publishing. Our final, end-of-year fundraising drive accounts for nearly half of our total budget. That’s why this fundraising drive is so important.

If you are someone who depends on In These Times to learn what is going on in the movements for social, racial, environmental and economic justice, the outcome of this fundraising drive is important to you as well.

How many readers like you are able to contribute between now and December 31 will determine the number of stories we can report, the resources we can put into each story and how many people our journalism reaches. If we come up short, it will mean making difficult cuts at time when we can least afford to do so.

If it is within your means, please make a tax-deductible donation today, to ensure that In These Times can continue publishing in the year ahead.
