apologies if people don't think this is within the scope of the global features, but i feel it's important to share and request.  

we have set a precedent over the past 6 years to post features occasionally that support an effort, organization, project to help raise money.  eff has been one of indymedia's true allies when it comes to dealing with our legal issues and continues to do so.  in the spirit of mutual aid, i'd love to see indymedia put up a feature to help them continue their work.  

i'd love to hear what others think, and since i'm no longer on this list, unfortunately, i would love to have people keep me in the cc loop.  thanks.

Subject: EFF needs your support!

Dear  Sheri,

As 2006 comes to a close, I'd like to thank you for your
support of the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and
our efforts to protect your digital rights.  Help us achieve
another successful year by donating to EFF today:

In a few weeks, EFF will once again play a key leadership role
in the Election Protection Coalition, where we will deploy a
team of over 40 lawyers across the country to document and
respond to problems with electronic voting machines on Election
Day.  In 2004, EFF attorneys helped people assert their rights
to vote on paper ballots and filed lawsuits when machines
prohibited people from exercising one of their most basic
democratic rights--the right to vote.

Support from members like you makes this project possible.

Over the past year, member contributions have helped EFF:

* Sue AT&T for violating the privacy rights of its customers
by collaborating with the NSA's secret spying programs
* Hold Sony BMG accountable for infecting music fans' computers
with flawed, privacy-invasive copy protection software
* Protect innovation and beat back legislation that would
cripple your digital media devices, like TiVos and iPods
* Stand up for your rights in global forums like the World
Intellectual Property Organization

But the fight is far from over, and we need your help.  As
we approach the holiday season, please support EFF with a
financial donation, so we can continue the fight to protect
your rights:

Thanks in advance for your help.

Shari Steele
Executive Director
