                            Militant Fighting Fund Endorsement

        I support the free speech and freedom of the press rights of the Militant newspaper. Please
     list me as an endorser of the Militant Fighting Fund.
        The C.W. Mining lawsuit, in the courts in Salt Lake City, Utah, against the United Mine
     Workers of America, and Co-Op miners fighting for the union, newspapers such as the
     Militant that have written about this struggle, and groups and individuals who have backed
     the miners, is an attempt to chill free speech and intimidate supporters of the miners. Such
     attacks on labor rights and the First Amendment should not be tolerated.
        I urge others to join me in endorsing the Militant Fighting Fund and to contribute
     generously to meet legal and publicity expenses.
            Enclosed is my contribution to the Militant Fighting Fund of $ ______________________
