10) PEOPLE'S VOICE FUND DRIVE FOR $50,000 STARTS NOW!
Last year, People’s Voice celebrated its 25th
anniversary by raising $50,000 in our annual
1- The working class needs its own media
2 - Peace and solidarity, not war and imperialism
3 - There is a federal election this year
Has it really been almost four years since voters kicked out Stephen Harper? In 2019, People’s Voice will campaign to dump the Liberals and block the Tories. But we don’t want a weak, centrist variation on neoliberal dogmas. In our pages, we call for a radical People’s Alternative: end corporate tax breaks, slash military spending, cancel the trade deal sellouts, invest billions in housing, child care, and public health.
4 - No Pasaran! Stop the fascist threat
ultra-right, violent, patriarchal fascist movements are on the march, from
Europe and Asia to Latin America, and here in
6 - New writing on crucial issues
Our Editorial Board encourages the development of grassroots working class correspondents. Our volunteers report from across the country: from Nanaimo on the west coast, to St. John, New Brunswick, and many locations between, and even from Shanghai, China. Your contribution will help us build this growing network of writers.
7 - Stand with Indigenous peoples!
Recent years have seen a surge of Indigenous struggles against resource extraction and export projects, and against the capitalist system based on turning the environment into nothing but a source of corporate profits. To expand our coverage of Indigenous movements, we need your help.
7 - A planet to save, a world to win
Climate catastrophes and the possibility of nuclear war both threaten human civilization, and half of present day plant and animal species may be extinct by 2100. A working class newspaper can help build broader social understanding that capitalism is killing us.
8 - “News for people, not for profit.”
Our goal is to help build resistance against the crisis-ridden capitalist system, and to win a genuine people’s alternative. We stand for a socialist future, in which working people own and control the economy, creating a world based on social justice, an end to exploitation, gender equality, liberation for oppressed peoples, environmental sustainability, and peace.
We are confident that our readers and friends agree with these aims, but we need action quickly. Please contribute or renew your subscription early, and help us achieve our ambitious $50,000 target before the federal election kicks into high gear.
