It must be said: the new reports on rape and sexual abuse at Abu Ghraib are stomach-churning. Truncheons, wire, utter degradation. The eyes turn away, the mind shuts down. But if we let it, we are lost.  

Elizabeth Cady Stanton: "Truth is the only safe ground to stand upon."



This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Won't Exist.
