CHICAGO — The people who write and produce your People’s Weekly World have an important message for you: It’s NOT going to be four more years of the same!

As discouraging and even frightening as the news was last week, we never missed a beat and we’re ready to keep up the fight, helping to give voice to the people’s movements.

We’ve been hearing from all over the country that people are mad as hell and they are NOT going to sit back and watch Bush and his ultra-right gang destroy all the hard-won victories, all that is good about our country, for another four years.

Your fight is our fight! The reader-powered PWW is committed to presenting your issues, your struggles, your voices at the workplace, on campus, in the neighborhood.

PWW is never going to receive big- buck corporate advertising. Like all independent papers, our subscription price doesn’t cover production costs. Our readers keep us going.

Our reader support base constantly writes us letters and e-mails with suggestions, questions, and criticism. Some of our readers send stories, photos, worker correspondence, letters to the editor, and longer opinion pieces. But we also need your cold hard cash.

We can only keep going with your financial support. Help us make our $200,000 fund drive goal. Please send your check or money order, or make a credit card donation online, today!

Thanks for your support. We won’t let you down.

Barbara Russum is a member of the dedicated design and advertising staff at Team PWW.
