Apologies to those who Just Can't Stand any more pictures of dying birds
or stories of criminal corporate malfeasance, but still: You've gotta
see this. A Mother Jones reporter got access to Isle Grande
Terre, where he found a handful of guys putting down PAPER

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.
