FDL’s Kevin Gosztola is on his way to Ferguson

By: Tuesday August 19, 2014 12:34 pm

Missouri cops in camouflage are tear-gassing, beating up and arresting protesters and journalists, threatening more if they don’t quiet down over the murder of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown But until the officer who killed Brown is brought to justice, the unrest is unlikely to subside. FDL reporter Kevin Gosztola is en-route to Ferguson right now [...]

Vanity Fair Applauds Kevin Gosztola’s Coverage of the Manning Trial

By: Friday June 13, 2014 7:40 am

Molly Crabapple has an excellent article in Vanity Fair on how journalists love to love dissidents in other countries (Pussy Riot) but ignore those in their own country (Barrett Brown, Cecily McMillan, Bradley Manning) who make them uncomfortable. In other words, all the people we cover here at FDL. So I was really happy to see her call out Kevin Gosztola for his work on the Manning trial.

It has been extraordinarily expensive to fly Kevin out and pay his expenses to attend each and every pre-trial hearing (one wonders why there were 15,000 journalists at the Democratic National Convention yet none of them can find their way to Fort Meade). But thanks to your generosity and support, Kevin has been a constant presence in the courtroom from the start, reminding the judge, the prosecutors and everyone involved that their actions are being watched and recorded for all the world to see.

Kevin Gosztola or Lawrence of Arabia?

Kevin Gosztola continues his tour of the north east occupations. Mark Haller sent this photo today of Kevin’s arrival at the Perry Park gazebo where Occupy Erie continues their occupation despite 8 police raids.

Kevin spent last night in a sleeping bag at Occupy Buffalo, where the temperature dropped to 15 degrees. Maybe that explains the Lawrence of Arabia vibe.

OccupySupply and UPS Shipping Issues…Hello FedEx

By: Saturday November 19, 2011 10:39 am

We really want to support UPS and unionized workers, but cold weather is setting in we need to get supplies out there as quickly as possible.  This has now set us back a day, because we have to spend the day getting the boxes out through another shipper.

We just don’t have the staff to do this on a regular basis.  So sadly we’re having to say goodbye to UPS, and hello to FedEx.

Support the OccupySupply Program.  100% of all funds received go to purchasing & distributing supplies to occupations around the country.
