Donations are the Life Blood of Salem-News.comSalem-News.com
Our stories help people every day.
(SALEM) - Publishing our 25,000th article this week was a real milestone for Salem-News.com. Launched during the summer of 2004, the site today has approximately 105 writers hailing from 25 countries.
Our regular visitors know that Salem-News.com covers beats that other news channels ignore. Palestine, Sri Lanka, Iran, Lebanon, Sudan, Burma, Pakistan and Balochistan are regions that we constantly cover, but we need the assistance of our readers to continue and we want those who visit to understand this. We replicate the services of large news agencies with hundreds of employees, with a very small number of people, most of whom are volunteers.
By helping this news organization, you directly support our ability to rally for the downtrodden masses suffering from government abuse and the effects of war and other trauma.
Human Rights define our primary purpose. There is no greater subject; nothing is worse for humanity than genocide, war crimes and ethnic cleansing. These things take place on a daily basis and we constantly explore the relationship between the actions of western government and the resulting impacts on human beings. Your support makes this all possible.
We have been recognized for our human rights reporting; Salem-News.com founder Tim King, and Bonnie King, were recently recognized in Maryland at the largest North American gathering of Tamil people, (a persecuted minority ethnic group in Sri Lanka). Both spoke at the event and Tim was FeTNA's (Federation of Tamil Sangams of North America) 2012 Keynote speaker in Baltimore.
The event was an incredible honor, but it does not help pay the bills and we need the support of our readers in order to keep the operation intact.
Our own Human Rights Ambassador directly contacts government officials every single day and has been credited with helping one activist be relieved from torture at the hands of ISI police in Pakistan.
We are truly trying to make a difference in this world and we have big plans, so please, click on the PayPal button and make a donation right now. We need it, and we appreciate your generosity because there are few more important things than an organization that has the potential to save lives. Please keep Salem-News.com alive.
We are going to keep saying this because we want Salem-News.com, which understandably has many expenses, to last well into the future. We want to keep political leaders on their toes, we rally for Veterans also, and a long list of other important subjects. So, if you can help then please send what you can via the PayPal icon below, which is also located at the top right side of Salem-News.com. You can always write to me with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. For Bonnie the address is email@example.com
