Milton Glaser, a longtime friend of The Nation and the designer behind the “I ♥ NY” campaign, is back with a new idea: He proposes that New Yorkers welcome the GOP in August with a display of light. The plan emerges from a desire to show anger at what the GOP and the Bush Administration have done to our city, our nation and the world, while avoiding violent confrontations that could help the GOP in November. We urge readers to spread the word about this bright, peaceful and creative protest against the darkness of the Bush agenda (go to lightupthesky.org to download or e-mail), and we hope those in the New York area will help light up the sky on August 30.

Thank you for reading The Nation

We hope you enjoyed the story you just read, just one of the many incisive, deeply-reported articles we publish daily. Now more than ever, we need fearless journalism that shifts the needle on important issues, uncovers malfeasance and corruption, and uplifts voices and perspectives that often go unheard in mainstream media.

Throughout this critical election year and a time of media austerity and renewed campus activism and rising labor organizing, independent journalism that gets to the heart of the matter is more critical than ever before. Donate right now and help us hold the powerful accountable, shine a light on issues that would otherwise be swept under the rug, and build a more just and equitable future.

For nearly 160 years, The Nation has stood for truth, justice, and moral clarity. As a reader-supported publication, we are not beholden to the whims of advertisers or a corporate owner. But it does take financial resources to report on stories that may take weeks or months to properly investigate, thoroughly edit and fact-check articles, and get our stories into the hands of readers.

Donate today and stand with us for a better future. Thank you for being a supporter of independent journalism.
