Counter-Currents/North American New Right Newsletter: July 2013

990 words

recitalDear Friends of Counter-Currents,

Since more people read our newletters when they are posted on the front page, I have decided to adopt this practice from now on. Henceforth, our mailing list will be used primarily for announcing sales, pre-orders, fundraisers, and other events. 

If you wish to join our newsletter, fill out the form below:

 

1. The Big News

Michael Polignano, the co-founder, Managing Editor, and Webmaster of Counter-Currents left Counter-Currents at the end of July. Mike is relocating to Rome, to reconnect with his family and heritage. Italy, of course, has a thriving Right-wing culture, so Mike’s energies and talents will not be lost to our larger cause. We wish him the best and hope that he will report on the Italian scene for Counter-Currents.

2. Our Readership and Web Traffic

If you visited Counter-Currents in July, you were one of 82,106 unique visitors.

Our web traffic remains plateaued, even though in July we had some downtime due to switching webhosts and we had fewer posts than in June.

3. Our Webzine

In July, we added 54 posts to the website (down from 70 in June), for a total of 2,810 posts since going online on June 11, 2010. We also added more than 500 comments.

4. Our Anniversary and Fundraising Efforts

Counter-Currents marked our third anniversary on June 11, 2013. Since Counter-Currents, like all journals that go against the current of time, needs the support of donors to thrive and grow, we kicked off our annual Summer Fundraiser on our birthday. The fundraiser will run until Halloween, October 31. Our goal is $50,000, and we have raised $12,771.50 so far, which means we have $37,228.50 to go. Thank you again to all our donors.

Our financial situation, and what you can do to help out, are outlined in my article “Movement or ‘Stuckment.’” Please consider making a donation today.

    Mike will certainly be missed and I imagine will be hard to replace. He is one of the few technically inclined people who can also write http://www.counter-currents.com/taking-our-own-side/.

    I hope that he enjoys his visit “home” and when sufficiently refreshed returns to his other home in the US. Onwards and upwards Mike, through thick and thin.

    Thank you for all you have done for us. Haste ye back.
