Attacked

A,

The recent attacks on our website made one thing clear: we’ve made some powerful, determined enemies.

Our suspicion is that far-right groups are responsible -- and we also suspect this won’t be the last time we hear from them.

Will you make a small donation each month to defend our work so, together, we can keep challenging corporate power and win?

No thanks,... but I’ll make a one-time gift

Thanks,

Here's my original email:




SumOfUs is a target now because together we’ve upset a lot of powerful people.

Right now only 1.12% of SumOfUs members are chipping in each month -- that’s not enough to upgrade our security system for the long term. Can you start a monthly donation?

A,

Thank goodness -- the attacks on our website have slowed down. The hackers haven’t completely given up yet. The reality is, they may never.

SumOfUs is a target now because together we’ve upset a lot of powerful people.

The attacks were sophisticated. They tried to break our website and stop us from being able to take donations. This could be disastrous for us.

We’re 100% independent -- we don’t take big cheques from corporations or governments. That means we rely on people like you, A, who understand that we’re in a battle for the future of our world right now.

But right now only 1.12% of SumOfUs members are chipping in every month -- and that’s not enough to keep us going in the face of this new threat.

Can you give a small monthly donation so that we can keep this fight going -- no matter what the attackers throw at us?

We still don’t know exactly who is behind the wave of attacks on SumOfUs. We suspect far-right groups -- but there are a lot of candidates.

The corporations we take on every day don’t play nice. Can I give you a little taste? Newly released Monsanto emails reveal the company’s shocking disdain for its critics. One Monsanto exec suggested they “beat the sh*t out of an advocacy group of mums” who dared to question the safety of glyphosate.

Maybe it's not such a surprise these Neonazis are coming after us. Remember Jamal? SumOfUs members like you stood by him when he took on a far-right fascist in the UK -- and Facebook's failure to stand up to racism.

It was SumOfUs members that helped get the far-right "news" platform Breitbart defunded, too. It's no wonder the far-right doesn't want SumOfUs around.

Can you help us stay safe and secure?

These people are some of the most powerful people in the world -- but they’re scared of you. That’s because you’re not alone in standing up to them. Together with hundreds of thousands of SumOfUs members around the world you take on the biggest bullies.

You move fast when injustice takes place. But to keep going, we need your help to upgrade our security system for the fights we’ll face in the future -- can you chip in a monthly donation?

Thanks for all that you do,
