HCN bears witness

Document Actions
I am a longtime subscriber to HCN. The willingness to address the political causes of land-management decisions in the coverage of HCN was striking, with the selection of a new executive director. But I believe that it is important. Politics is the modus operandi of the corporations and their political allies who recognize only the short-term economic value of biologically productive land.

There are two purposes served by the news: (1) to provide people with the information they need to keep democracy alive, and (2) to bear witness to what is happening, and to tell others about it. HCN is serving both of these purposes well. You must continue in this vein. Our current circumstances require it.
