A Message of Peace from Global Research

Dear Readers,

On behalf of the Global Research team, we wish you a happy holiday season and a peaceful New Year. We extend our sincere thanks for your continued support and encouragement. Global Research will continue to bring you cutting-edge articles and research on a daily basis, although we will be reducing our pace slightly as we wind up 2009 and prepare for the year ahead. We look forward to continuing our full-time operations in the New Year.

As the end of 2009 rapidly approaches, we are reminded of all the changes that have taken place in the past year:

-We see the pressing environmental agenda being hijacked, yet simultaneous attempts are being made to redirect our focus away from the true issues at stake.

-We see the world’s most powerful president and commander in chief receiving the highest acknowledgment for contribution to Peace, and yet we see the global war theatre actively crippling entire nations, with no end in sight.

-We see a shattered global economy where families are losing homes, jobs and security in unprecedented numbers, and yet banks and multi-nationals are celebrating their financial victories.

And what does the future hold?

To say that the public has become disillusioned and wary of the constant doomsday media reports and news coverage is a gross understatement; people see their world changing and they want to understand what is happening, and why. They want to be informed and therefore be prepared.

In response, Global Research has continued to deliver vital and timely information, and we are grateful for the input of our editors, contributors, staff and volunteers in helping to carry out this task. Our reader feedback has been an invaluable source of encouragement, motivation and growth.

Nonetheless, curbing the tide of disinformation being pumped out by powerful and well-funded mainstream media is a considerable challenge. Global Research operates on a shoe-string budget and does not accept funding from outside sources, and is thus able to maintain its independence. However, we would not be able to do this without the financial contributions of our readers, and to continue our efforts we need your support.
