Five reasons to go to jail like you mean it

I’ve had it. Enough with the phone calls, emails and Facebook entreaties for money to pay bail to get someone out of jail for their part in a civil resistance action. Let me explain why I think this is such a big problem.

On (or after!) Election Day, please send a few dollars to keep the Nuclear Resister going


November 6, 2012

Dear friends,

Today is election day in the U.S.  But presidential elections do not distract us from the important work the Nuclear Resister continues to do year round, year after year.  We know that whoever is elected, nonviolent resistance to nuclear weapons, nuclear power and war must continue. And after watching eight such contests come and go since the Nuclear Resister began in October of 1980, we are confident that the resistance will continue.

We are also certain that publishing the newsletter and expanding our outreach via blog, email and Facebook would not be possible without your vital support! We are deeply grateful to know that we can count on the generosity of your donations to help us continue reporting on these acts of conscience and encouraging support for imprisoned activists, bringing this news of resistance to thousands of people around the world.
