I don't generally post fundraising requests, but I just heard that the International Middle East Media Center (IMEMC) is in dire need of funds. If you follow the situation in Palestine, you're probably familiar with IMEMC, but let me give you an insight into the role they play for organizations like CPT and communities like At-Tuwani. Every time the Israeli military violates international law or Israeli settlers harass Palestinians in the South Hebron Hills, IMEMC is the first news outlet we call. They've been an invaluable as we've tried to tell the stories of At-Tuwani to as wide an audience as possible. In addition to running a wonderful website, they produce a weekly radio show that can be heard all over the world (and downloaded through itunes.) So, think about sending them some cash - we desperately need news outlets that tell truth and cover overlooked stories, like those coming from the South Hebron Hills
