How you can support Free Speech and Independent Media in the Valley

Greetings Friends,

The Valley War Bulletin is a publication distributed throughout Western Massachusetts. As its title suggests, one focus of the paper is the war on Iraq and the ongoing political, economic and humanitarian effects of US military action in the Middle East and around the world.

But the paper also has a larger focus: to analyze and report on the local and national impact of US globalization policies advocated by the current administration.

The first five issues were financially supported by a grant to AFSC by the Solidago Foundation Stop War Fund. Subsequent issues and Bulletin racks have been supported with tag sales, bake sales and partnerships with local groups such as Solidaridad Colombia. Each issue costs $215.00 for 2,000 copies printed by a union shop. The publication has no other expenses at this time, since all the labor is volunteer-based and AFSC kicks in postage costs to mail the Bulletins out to local distributors throughout our region.

We are actively pursuing funding from many sources and hope to keep going. There is a great deal of creative energy around this project and we all have high hopes for what it could become.

You can help in several ways:

  • Join the Bulletin team (!) and serve on the editorial board, write for the Bulletin, help write grants, edit, help with layout or distribution
  • Send in a financial donation to AFSC designated for the Bulletin
  • Hold your own bake sale, tag sale, poetry reading, concert, etc. and donate the funds to the bulletin.

Please feel free to contact AFSC at (413) 584-8975 or afsc@crocker.com.

Donations in any amount are greatly appreciated.
Please send and make checks payable to the:
