Only You, the Readers, Can Keep Narco News and the Other Journalism Running at Full Power

Show Your Support and Donate to the Fund for Authentic Journalism

By Benjamin Melançon

March 16, 2006

Dear Readers,

$1,429.45 in my own bank account will not keep Narco News running full power for long. It will not keep the Other Journalism with the Other Campaign in food and fuel for much time at all. Added to the $700 left in the Fund account from the contributions by the many remarkable donors among you (some still waiting for me to get our “Chew On This” and “Gringothon” DVDs to them), it will do something. But alone — not enough.

I try to think of people I know to ask for money to support these bulletins from Latin America — but in the end, there’s no one to ask but you the readers. Maybe some of you, like me, haven’t been able to read all of every report from South America, Mexico, and north of the border, too. But we are the readers. We know the reporting is good. We know what’s reported is important. We know it’s not free. I do not decide what gets first funding with your dollars, pesos, and occasional troy ounce of silver — I just collect and pass on — but it doesn’t take any insider knowledge to figure out what can’t be done if the money isn’t there.

So I ask every reader to be as generous with his or her money as you all are with your time. I ask all of you, whether you can spare money or not, to tell other people about Narco News, because the authentic journalists who work and often donate their time for Narco News do so not for their own amusement but in order to inform the widest audience of people possible. (Anyone interested in helping to promote the Narco News Bulletin in a systematic way, please contact me with ideas or offers.)

To sustain the increased level of reporting, we the readers of Narco News need to come up with more funding, from ourselves and from increasing awareness of this source of authentic news from Latin America. I’m giving what I have. What level we reach is up to all of us.
