il manifesto is yours. Take it back
We have two important news for you: one good and one not so good.
The good news is that il manifesto is in good health.
Despite the dramatic crisis and the serious difficulties of print journalism all over the world, our balance sheet in sales and subscriptions is in good shape and little by little, day by day, we are improving the quality of the newspaper and its supplements in both paper and digital editions.
The bad news is that the logo il manifesto remains the property of the liquidators of the former cooperative and by 2015 will be offered to the highest bidder so that there is the risk that the paper falls into “dirty” hands.
That’s why we ask you to help us, we do want to turn this bad news in good news.
In fact, the current cooperative, the only legitimate editor of the paper, is ready to make an offer to buy the logo, so we ask:
Help us buy il manifesto. To do this, we need to collect one million euros.
Donation is easy and takes only a second, directly on this page with a credit card or below by bank transfer.
As a reader of il manifesto you are part of our lives: we seek to build a paper to suit your expectations and for that we are publishing a website and digital apps which are advertising-free.
We are a true cooperative, managed and self-organized by journalists and people who live by their work. We truly believe in what we are doing: each worker has donated to il manifesto, in recent months, more than 5000 euros of its own (and meager) salary for this cause.
We believe this is the strongest sign of our independence from any power and is part of the covenant of “quality” and “autonomy” that we have with you since 1971.
If you want to subscribe, you can do it here.
We can only trust our friends, colleagues, readers, and, together, become “owners” of our future.
That’s why we ask you to join us, this unique company needs your help.
We count on you
