You can help promote liberty and peace!
Would you like to join in a valuable effort that helps people in distress and promotes individual liberty at the same time? The libertarians of CAFMI (the Central Asian Free Market Institute) are leading a campaign to stop the political violence in Kyrgyzstan, to help people avoid violent gangs, and to get supplies to those who have been displaced. Tom Palmer gives full details on the campaign. (Worth reading!)
"We" at Unforeseen Contingencies strongly endorse this effort, and CAFMI in general. I've followed their acitivities a bit, and even communicated with CAFMI's director Mirsulzhan Namazaliev myself. This is a fine group of principled and uncompromising people, who are able to accomplish a great deal while "working on a shoestring," as we say in the States.
If you have some spare dollars, euros, rubles, hryvnia, etc., we urge you to make a donation (tax-deductible in the U.S.!) to the Central Asian Free Market Institute (CAFMI) through the Atlas Economic Research Foundation, which supports CAFMI.
Contact Erin.Grant@AtlasNetwork.org and 100% of your donation will be dedicated to CAFMI’s work in Central Asia. Even small donations will help.
As Tom Palmer puts it, "It would be a decision you would not regret."
