Dear Global Research Member and Newsletter Subscriber 

The Center for Research on Globalization (CRG) needs your support to continue its tireless efforts in promoting and distributing alternative news and in-depth research on important national and international issues.

We have currently more than 9000 Newsletter subscribers. Last month, Global Research had more than 1.4 million visits for the entire month. However, only a small number of our regular readers have contributed to Global Research or have become members.

To maintain our independence, the CRG does not take money from private or public foundations. Without the support of readers, the CRG cannot maintain its operations or provide you with a venue for alternative, independent news.
