I want to endorse this call and will send in $50 myself today. Here's
the reason why.
Monthly Review is an indispensable source of information and analysis
for anti-imperialist activists just like us. From its inception, MR
has always understood the importance of Marx's observation that the
English working class would never be free as long as Ireland was
under the English yoke. Recent discussions on the list have
emphasized the importance of the national question. While we have
obligations as activists to support struggles of oppressed
nationalities, we also have an obligation to support scholarship that
promotes these struggles as well.
Please be generous.
