Stop the Funding


With Congress about to pass a bloated defense budget and Gen.
McChrystal calling for tens of thousands more troops in Afghanistan,
progressive groups
have declared Wednesday Sept. 30 a National Call-In Day. CODEPINK,
Peace Action, Just Foreign Policy, Voters for Peace and others urge
people to tell their representatives to vote against the defense
appropriations bill and to co-sponsor the McGovern bill, which calls
for an exit plan. Call 202-224-3121 or 202-225-3121. Put it on the calendar.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

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
