An Old Story

Stop the Post Office

Harkening back to that august period during the first world war, when Woodrow Wilson authorized the postmaster, Albert S. Burleson, to peek into the mail and halt anything he felt was seditious, (see Espionage Act of 1917, and especially the Sedition Act of 1918) killing distribution of important socialist magazines like The Masses, the Postal “Service”, this time out, is raising rates for small publishers. What this means is that independent magazines like The Nation, struggling as they do with small budgets, suddenly find themselves confronted with an exorbitant cost increase.

If you can, please help the Nation by contributing, here. Also please click on the above stamp to join the campaign to maintain freedom of speech for small independent and progressive magazines.
