On New Year’s Eve, we at The Electronic Intifada send our thanks to each and every person who supported our journalism for justice in 2020.

Whether you read and shared our articles, videos, podcasts and photostories or made a financial contribution to keep our work going, you made a difference.

You helped us keep a light shining on Palestine during an extraordinary year.

Although 2020 has been tough in so many ways, we must not forget to celebrate.

There have been many victories for Palestinian rights, as my colleague Nora Barrows-Friedman reminded us this week in her round-up of the successes of the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement.

“This year saw achievements by activists, students, civil rights defenders and lawmakers to uphold the right to boycott Israel – even as lawmakers, Israel lobby groups and the Israeli government itself attempted to derail, smear, attack and imprison organizers,” Nora writes.

More people than ever – people like you and me all around the world – are willing to stand up and challenge Israel’s crimes.

And I’m proud of the role The Electronic Intifada plays every day: We support the movement for Palestinian freedom with accurate, timely information and analysis that people can use.

I’ve included below just a sample of the high-quality work our readers helped us do this year. Take a look!

What’s crucial to our success and impact is that we have no fear of the Israel lobby. We are free to say what needs to be said thanks to the support of individuals like you. You keep us independent and strong.

So if you have not made a contribution to our annual campaign, would you consider making one right now?

Donations are tax deductible for US taxpayers and welcome from any country.

The funds we raise this time of year help support our fantastic coverage all year long. Your gift ensures we have the resources to pay our editors, photographers and reporters in Palestine and beyond.**

Let’s start the year in hope that all good things are possible, including justice in Palestine, and let’s renew our pledge to work for a better world.

From me and The Electronic Intifada team, we wish you a safe and healthy new year.

Ali Abunimah
Executive Director
