I received this email today from GATA. I hope it is appropriate to post it here as it seems important. I shudder to think what the PM market would be like today without the influence of these guys.

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Challenging all the money and power in the world, GATA long has operated more or less on a shoestring. This has largely been our own fault, insofar as we have put most of our effort into research and clamor and little into fundraising. The situation has gotten critical over the last year as central banks have intensified their efforts to suppress monetary metals prices, most of the monetary metals mining industry has chosen to curl up and die guietly rather than fight back, and metals investors have suffered serious losses.

Since we’re fanatics in pursuit of free and transparent markets, limited and accountable government, and fair dealing among nations, we’re not discouraged at all. We have evidence that our work has had a substantial impact, influencing government policy and market opinion around the world despite a blackout in the mainstream financial news media. And it is a bit of a triumph for us that central banks intervening against the monetary metals have had to give up all subtlety for their interventions since April last year. They have gotten more scared of losing control of the markets they have been rigging than they are scared of getting caught, but the more they are caught, the less effective their rigging will be and the more likely they will be to lose control completely. Europe

GATA means to keep pressing them and we don’t need a lot simply to stay in business and keep the flag flying. We don’t have the expense of the World Gold Council’s lovely offices in downtown London and its many highly paid employees. We can continue to operate on the electricity, telephone, and Internet service in our executives’ homes.

But our officers do make considerable sacrifices of their time — they are stuck in this struggle for its duration — and with more resources we can do more research, support the work of our consultants, make more presentations to the people who most should learn what’s really going on, undertake more lawsuits, and strike more blows for the cause.

This is not a general fundraising appeal. Our side is probably hurting too much for that and we’re not going to keep exploiting our best friends. Rather, it’s just the preface to our announcement that a hundred more GATA T-shirts are available for sale at $30 each, plus a small shipping charge, thereby facilitating smaller contributions that will give donors a little tangible evidence of their support.

The shirts are emblazoned with the colorful GATA painting by Alain Despert and are available in medium, large, and extra-large sizes. If we sell them all, we’ll recover the cost of their manufacture and our merchandise fulfillment house’s processing cost and come out ahead by a thousand dollars or so.

They can be viewed and purchased by credit card at GATA’s Internet site here: http://gata.org/tshirts
