Dear Readers,

Did you know that thanks to the contributions of our readers, we have been able to maintain complete independence? This means that we do not accept support from any private foundations, which now more than ever are seeking to control and manipulate the alternative news media. Instead, our news coverage comes from a multitude of diverse perspectives to ensure you get the true big picture of what’s happening in the world.

Through our extensive networks of dedicated contributors, readers and volunteers, we are able to keep our operating costs as low as possible. However, mobilizing to meet the increasing demand for truth in media means that we need to meet rising expenses. To that end, Global Research recently initiated a Fund Raising Campaign with the intention to raise $15,000.

We thank everyone who has answered the call by sending in donations, creating memberships and spreading the word to friends and colleagues. Now is the time to push ahead to meet our fundraising goals, and we need your help!

Every amount, great or small, goes directly toward our projects and activities at the Centre. Plus, all donations of $100 or more are entitled to receive a FREE COPY of our new book, The Global Economic Crisis: The Great Depression of the XXI Century. Keep reading to find out more…

Global Research has become one of the leading alternative news media in North America. has more than 2.2 million hits (page views) on a monthly basis, approximately one million visits and 550,000 “absolute visitors”  (Google Diagnostics). Our E-Newsletter is sent out to more than 23,000 subscribers. 

While Global Research operates on a shoe-string budget compared to the well-endowed establishment think tanks, it has more readers than the powerful Council on Foreign Relations (CFR):
