Hello all you Slingshot Readers. You are special. You have sought out a fresh voice of information and inspiration, a source uncorrupted by corporate money and control. In fact we are all volunteer and take no money for corporate advertising. We are not owned by a national chain as are our four local major newspapers (The Berkeley Voice, the most recent victim, has fallen into the jaws of Night Ridder Corp.). We are not concerned about how our presentation of a conflict may affect our arms sale department. As even KPFA now takes tainted money, we remain one of the increasingly few sources of media that is free to report from conscience. Send us articles, letters, photos and artwork. Send us Money. Help us pay the $1,500 we spent on this issue! Buy our unique, freshly printed 1999 Slingshot Organizer now available for holiday dispersal.
Slingshot is a quarterly, independent, radical newspaper published in the East Bay since 1988. Editorial decisions about Slingshot – are made by the Slingshot Collective Articles do not necessarily represent the opinions of everyone in Slingshot. We welcome debate, discussion and criticism.
