Fundraising Update

Just a brief note… I’ve disabled the current fundraiser page because Google Checkout has suspended our account. I will be launching a new fundraiser late tonight or early tomorrow using Paypal. Message from Google Checkout follows:

  1. Hah, I donated last year, and looked around and found nothing about tax exempt status, and simply assumed the MI's commitment to anarchism was so complete that they would not deign to apply for tax-exempt status.


  2. I would be in a position to contribute more to C4SS if it reduced the amount I was compelled to turn over to armed gunmen. Assuming you don't object to decreased taxation by the State, I would suggest taking this as a sign that you should put more effort toward completing the 501(c)(3) process before so much time has passed that the State has disappeared.
