This space is dedicated to the proposition that we need to know the history of the struggles on the left and of earlier progressive movements here and world-wide. If we can learn from the mistakes made in the past (as well as what went right) we can move forward in the future to create a more just and equitable society. We will be reviewing books, CDs, and movies we believe everyone needs to read, hear and look at as well as making commentary from time to time. Greg Green, site manager

your name! NY Times ad to declare: We are Bradley Manning
Dear Pf, On Thursday, July 25, the Bradley Manning Support Network intends to
publish a full-page ad in The New York Times, the nation’s “newspaper of
record.” The ad will feature a bold “WE ARE BRADLEY MANNING” with a field of
names in the background–hopefully, yours included.
We have only until July 24 to raise the $52,000 needed. By making a
tax-deductible donation of $100 or more today, you will ensure that your name is
featured in the ad. Smaller donations are very much appreciated, but donor names
may or may not appear in the ad. Any person may donate and remain anonymous as
well. Add your name and make a tax-deductible contribute to this ad
This ad effort was deemed to be a high priority by a recent survey of nearly
1,000 backers of the Bradley Manning Support Network. If you have any problems
donating online, please contact us at 510-488-3559.
