We carry numerous excellent articles from Frontera NorteSur that pertain to our border region. We urge our readers to help keep this service afloat after it nearly lost its NMSU funding recently. Though it won a reprieve, FNS’ financial situation is still precarious. Editor
The year 2015 has been another very busy year for Frontera NorteSur. In addition to our regular digest and analysis of news from Mexico, FNS has featured exclusive reports on the missing 43 Ayotzinapa college students and other cases of forcibly disappeared people south of the border, covered the historic trial of six men accused in the mass murder of women in Ciudad Juarez and probed toxic legacies and ex-worker health problems related to the former Asarco site in El Paso, Texas-a story virtually forgotten by other media.
We’ve continued reporting on efforts connected to building a new agricultural economy and food system in the southwestern border region of the United States, while staying on top of economic trends that affect the larger farm economy both regionally and globally. And we’ve begun a new series featuring the voices of student writers on issues ranging from immigration to the many dimensions of New Mexican and cross-border culture.
As Frontera NorteSur operates on a shoe-string budget, this reportage would not have been possible without the assistance of you, the reader. So once again we are asking you to step up to the plate and help carry us into another year stronger and more capable than before.
We think you will agree with us that having a news source like Frontera NorteSur is a must as critical developments loom in 2016 on all kinds of fronts.
We are kindly asking readers to please send TAX-DEDUCTIBLE contributions of $30, $50, $100 or more to help us meet our current fundraising goal. If you can afford more, we greatly appreciate your donation.
You can send your donation in today either by check or electronically. Just follow the instructions at the bottom of this letter. Again, all contributions to Frontera NorteSur are tax deductible.
Also, we welcome any referrals of larger funding sources. If you have a lead, please contact Dr. Garcia-Bryce at the e-mail below. And thank you so very much for your donation!
