Almost by definition, a project like ours has no patron.
MERIP can afford to be critical because it is independent. No big advertising accounts to lose. No ties to any government, corporation or special interest. Nothing guides our coverage but our collective conscience.
“Perspectives and information readers won’t find in corporate media.”
— Suheir Hammad, poet and actress
“No embedded journalists or ethnic stereotyping.”
— Code Pink activist Medea Benjamin
To maintain our independence, we need your help.
If you are an occasional reader who likes our blog or tweets our Israel-Palestine primer to your friends, please show your appreciation with a donation. If you are a paying subscriber or a frequent donor, thank you! Please consider making an extra investment in MERIP now to make sure we are around for the long haul.
The summer of 2014 was terribly trying for people in the Middle East and those who care about them. We know there are many urgent demands on your attention and ability to help. Nevertheless, we ask you to dig deep to help MERIP, too.
We are about 30 percent of the way to our fall fundraising goal of $10,000, which we must meet entirely through your donations. Every little bit helps—even a $5 or $10 gift will get us closer to our target.
Our readers—you—are our lifeline.
