Global Research Week in Review Selected Articles 16 December 2011: Looking back, moving forward

15 December, 2011 — Global Research

Two months ago, we approached Global Research readers with a challenge: to increase the Global Research Newsletter list by 10,000 new subscribers before the end of 2011. Now mid-December, we have made significant steps forward, and although we have not (yet!) reached our goal, the response has been encouraging.

Today, there are 28,058 subscribers receiving daily news, article lists (like the one below), information about important events and breaking news. This newsletter service is FREE because we believe that the more people know the truth about the world we live in, the more empowered we will be to make the necessary changes, to stand up for a world without war, a world where accountability takes precedence over inequality.

As a new goal, can we reach 30,000 subscribers in the next two weeks? Are there 3 people you can forward this email to right now and encourage to sign on? If even one of those subscribes to receive the Global Research newsletter, we can blow away the goal and count thousands of people amongst those who choose to stay informed and refuse mainstream media lies. We need your help to do this!If you received this email in your inbox, please click “Forward” to send it along to 3 of your contacts… or more! If you are not yet on the list, simply enter your email address in the box below, and a confirmation will be sent to you by email.

The end of 2011 is around the corner and where are we at? NATO in Syria, financial collapse in Europe, militarization of peaceful protests… The list goes on, pointing to the obvious: all is NOT right with the world.

However, there are steps we can take every day, big and small, against injustice. Learn, explore, understand… and together we can STOP the lies and start 2012 with hope for peace.

Information is free; awareness if priceless.

With best wishes,

The Global Research Team
