In honor of the upcoming International Women's Day, CODEPINK is highlighting the plight of women in Gaza and seeking donations to an international delegation's delivery of humanitarian aid there. For as little as $10 per person, they will be giving out packages of everything from food and first-aid materials to soaps and sweets. Their campaign will distribute goods through four Gaza-based groups. To donate or get more information go here.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever
Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
