Silence Is The Enemy


Acknowledging rape and other sexual atrocities in wartime – in Darfur, Liberia, Congo – as "a public health issue that's so big, so

From the editors of PLoS Medicine: "Medical professionals are powerful lobbyists whose
recognition of the devastation could galvanize support for the work of
humanitarian organizations and advocacy groups in...holding states accountable...We can all do more to document and
disseminate the research and accounts of health workers,
nongovernmental organizations, and survivors."



Independent media 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 our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
