WSWS 15th Anniversary Fund Drive
The World Socialist Web Site is marking its 15th anniversary of daily publication. As part of this campaign, we are calling on all our readers to financially support the WSWS to lay the foundation for an immense expansion of its content and influence.
Over the past 15 years, the World Socialist Web Site has established an extraordinary record. There is no other publication like it. At a time when so many “left” and liberal publications have made their peace with the political establishment, the WSWS has refused to compromise its principles.
In response to every major development, the WSWS has sought not only to record what happened, but to reveal the truth of what happened. Our daily coverage of political, economic and cultural developments has won the site a devoted international readership. With 40,000 to 50,000 individual readers a day, the WSWS is the most widely read socialist publication on the Internet.
The work of the WSWS requires resources. We call on you, our readers, to make a sacrifice and donate to the WSWS.
Our web site must be developed and expanded. The perspective upon which the WSWS was founded is being confirmed by events. World capitalism is in a state of profound crisis. Acting on behalf of the corporate and financial elite, governments around the world are carrying out a policy of ruthless austerity. One war follows the next. The most basic democratic rights are being abrogated. Most importantly, there is a growth of working class struggle all over the world.
These events place ever greater demands on the web site, to which we must respond. After all, the task of the WSWS is not simply to analyze, but to inform, educate and provide a revolutionary perspective to guide the struggles of the working class. The site must become the voice of the international working class and the organizing center for revolutionary movements all around the world.
The success of the WSWS has only been possible due to the support of its readership, of all who have donated in the past. We have committed to making available all of our articles—now numbering over 45,000—available free of charge. The WSWS runs no advertisements and has no corporate sponsors.
We are launching a special 15th Anniversary Fund Drive. We call on you, our readers, to make the most generous possible donation.
We are making a special appeal to our regular readers to sign up for a monthly pledge. Become a WSWS subscriber and commit to funding our monthly budget, which goes to financing our staff, sending reporters to cover events and working class struggles, improving our technology and meeting other basic needs.
With your assistance, the WSWS will lay the basis for a new revolutionary socialist movement of the international working class.
