Help Send IGD to Standing Rock, Mexico, and #J20 With New Media Tools

Amazon Wish List Here

This month has shown the dire need for a revolutionary autonomous project like IGD. As we have grown in the past few weeks, covering the unfolding anti-Trump actions, blockades against fracking trains in Olympia, militant antifa actions across the South, and the ongoing resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline on the Standing Rock Reservation; we have started to think about where we are heading in the coming months and how we can grow while getting there.

While our far-Right detractors love to paint a picture that anyone who challenges white supremacy, capitalism, and the governments that manage them as funded by billionaires like George Soros or big corporate foundations, we are solely funded by our readers and supporters. We aren’t beholden to anyone but the movements and struggles that we are a part of and our own convictions. We also don’t need to shill for rich liberals – the financial support that we have gotten over the past few months has been astounding and shows us that we can continue to do this work full time and sustain ourselves while doing it.

But in order for IGD to get bigger and better in the coming months, we’re going to have to branch out and expand our impact. This is why we are hitting the road. In order to get out there we are going to need a bit more cash and some new equipment. We are including our Amazon wish list here. If you wanna get IGD a holiday gift that will go far, now is the time! If you have some extra cash from a gift card and want to throw it our way, please do!

With this new equipment, we hope to:

  • Spend a month at the Standing Rock blockade in North Dakota and continue to do interviews, audio documentaries, direct reporting, and more while at the blockade. See our previous coverage on the IGDCAST here.
  • Coverage at the #DisruptJ20 demonstrations in Washington DC on January 20th.
  • Sending our one and only Scott Campbell to Mexico on a massive trip to interview, report on, and make connections with anarchist, anti-authoritarian, indigenous, and anti-capitalist groups and social movements. More info here.

IGD has grown by leaps and bounds in the last several months and our hopes are high that we can meet these goals by the end of the holidays. Whether you have been with us from the start or you are new to the game, thanks for the support and we are excited about what we have in store for everyone.

Donate to help us grow and expand!
