Just a few weeks ago, Mondoweiss launched a $60,000 summer fund drive to prepare for the upcoming challenges facing accurate, responsible journalism about Palestine and the movement for its liberation. Thanks to hundreds of generous supporters, we have met and surpassed our goal for this campaign. As we enter our new fiscal year September 1, we have enough resources to tackle the mission that drives us: reporting the truth from Palestine and Israel with as much detail, scope and context as possible to as many people as possible around the world.

We hear regularly from people like you, who value the reporting and analysis provided by Mondoweiss. But this summer, as we push to raise the funds for more news, there are hundreds of past supporters we haven’t heard from yet. If you give $25 or more by August 10, we’ll send you a Mondoweiss poster showcasing the work of talented Palestinian photojournalists. Just think: if everyone who reads Mondoweiss regularly could give today, the investment would total tens of thousands of dollars. And all the gifts we receive in response to this message will go directly toward paying Palestinian reporters, photographers and videographers.
We can count on Mondoweiss to cover critical issues related to Palestine, with depth and with soul. Please join me in giving now.
Give now—and double your impact. Generous Mondoweiss supporters will match the first $2500 we receive in gifts and pledges over the next 24 hours.
As organizers, we know how important the media are to changing public opinion. Since the #GreatMarchofReturn, Mondoweiss’s truth-telling has been even more essential. That’s why we contribute financially — and ask that you join us.

Akram Al-Wa’ra, Mondoweiss correspondent, writes: “I have witnessed many atrocities in my life here in Palestine. I have seen my friends shot and killed during protests and my family members arrested and thrown in jail. But nothing prepared me for what I witnessed in the footage from Gaza. If it wasn’t for organizations like Mondoweiss, many of these images would never be seen by the international community. My people need Mondoweiss to thrive and grow—please help now.”

While demonstrators are at the mercy of an army that has proved conscienceless, people like you are investing to ensure word gets out.

In order to keep the momentum going, a generous donor has pledged $50 for each of the next ten people who commit to a new recurring donation at any level.

You already know that last Friday in Palestine tens of thousands of dedicated Palestinians made their way to the border between Gaza and Israel, and that the Israeli armed forces used snipers to pick off individuals and intimidate nonviolent protesters. Mondoweiss reported from the Great March of Return, and will continue to provide photo, video and oral documentation of this historic statement of sumud—and the atrocities in response. We truly believe that our work reporting on this systematic violence is a vital tool in fighting against it and building a better future. If you agree that truth-telling is mighty and necessary, please consider signing up for a regular contribution to be processed every other week.
We are grateful to the hundreds of donors who provided over $175,000 in response to our Thousand Voices for Truth campaign. Thank you to every single contributor!

Jonathan Cook writes: “The passage, and now the enforcement, of laws prohibiting entry for BDS advocates are part of the effort to silence voices from outside Israel/Palestine. But Israel is fighting a losing battle, due to the persistence of Palestinian journalists, the slow opening of cracks in the mainstream media, and the new opportunities for freelance journalists like myself through electronic media such as Mondoweiss. The existence of Mondoweiss and other online outlets means that I can report honestly what I learn from witnesses and documents—information that ‘established’ media have been too cowardly to publish.”
