Indypendent Subscription Party!!

Indypendent | Celebrate three and a half years of radical, independent journalism Saturday 8 p.m. at 216 E. 118th St., Apt. 3C. There will be food, drink, music and a rooftop view of the East River. Since its inception, The Indypendent has grown from an occasional four-page paper to an award-winning, free biweekly that circulates throughout the New York area. According to Naomi Klein, it “mixes the spirit of direct action with a searing critique of corporate power”. With a volunteer staff of over 30 people and no rich patrons or political party affiliations, it is also a groundbreaking experiment in participatory democracy. A free press isn’t free. Please help us to continue growing as we head into 2004. We are encouraging everyone who comes Saturday to purchase a one-year subscription ($27) to the paper.
