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.

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
