Chance for a Don North Gift DVD
As a bonus for donations to our year-end fund drive, we are offering a gift copy of veteran war correspondent Don North’s DVDs that take you into the lives of Salvadoran peasants who rose up in the early 1980s to battle a brutal military regime armed and funded by Washington.
Anyone who gives – or has given – a donation of $100 or more can get Don’s new documentary, “Guazapa: Yesterday’s Enemies,” which takes the story of these peasant fighters to the present day – or his earlier documentary, “Guazapa: The Face of War in El Salvador.”
If you wish to take advantage of this limited time offer, just make your tax-deductible donation by credit card by clicking here, and follow it up with an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org telling us which DVD you prefer and where to send it. (If you’ve recently made a donation of $100 or more, just drop us an e-mail with your choice and address.)
Or you can send a check or money order to: Consortium for Independent Journalism (CIJ); 2200 Wilson Blvd.; Suite 102-231; Arlington VA 22201. (You can find a mail-in donation form by clicking here. Just write your choice on the form or in a note.)
We’ve set a goal of raising $100,000 by year’s end. Sadly, so far, we've raised only about 15 percent of that target. So please do what you can to help – and enjoy the courageous video reporting of Don North, one of the great war correspondents of modern times.
Toward reaching our fundraising goal, we also can count purchases of Robert Parry’s three-book set (Lost History, Secrecy & Privilege, and Neck Deep). For details on that discount offer, click here.
And, we can count any commitments for "Bob and Ray" talks by investigative reporter Robert Parry and former CIA analyst Ray McGovern. Money raised from these talks goes to support the articles that you see at Consortiumnews.com. For details on scheduling a talk, click here.
Please help so we can continue doing our part in building a truthful foundation on which a strong democracy can rise again.
Thanks so much.
Robert Parry, Editor
Robert Parry broke many of the Iran-Contra stories in the 1980s for the Associated Press and Newsweek. He founded Consortiumnews.com in 1995 as the Internet's first investigative magazine. He saw it as a way to combine modern technology and old-fashioned journalism to counter the increasing triviality of the mainstream U.S. news media.
