Omar Barghouti writes the latest message in our series What Mondoweiss Means To Me: “Every year, I contribute to Mondoweiss, and I’m writing now to urge you to do the same. Here’s why: Mondoweiss is a rare beacon of free speech and insightful analysis. But more than that, the site is a vital tool for raising awareness in the US about the struggle for Palestinian rights. And given the central role that the US establishment plays in enabling Israel’s regime of oppression against the Palestinian people, shifting US public opinion towards freedom, justice and equal rights for Palestinians, as well as for all oppressed communities around the world, becomes absolutely necessary.” We are asking Mondoweiss readers to help to raise $60,000 by December 31. Please donate and tell us what Mondoweiss means to you.

Please join me today in supporting Mondoweiss, the essential herald that brings the world news of all who dare speak out.” We are asking Mondoweiss readers to help to raise $60,000 by December 31.
