Fundraising campaign captures matching contribution and GATA presses on


1p ET Wednesday, January 1, 2019

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Thanks to more than a hundred people, GATA has met the fundraising challenge set for us a month ago by Stefan Gleason of Money Metals Exchange when he pledged a $5,000 contribution if we could match it with contributions from our supporters.

Without that powerful incentive, our campaign almost certainly would have ended unimpressively, given the demoralization, cynicism, and cowardice that still permeate the monetary metals mining business, as well as the cowardice of mainstream financial news organizations.

Storage and Withdrawal of Gold with Bullion Star in Singapore

Bullion Star is a Singapore-registered company with a one-stop bullion shop, showroom, and vault at 45 New Bridge Road in Singapore.

Bullion Star's solution for storing bullion in Singapore is called My Vault Storage. With My Vault Storage you can store bullion in Bullion Star's bullion vault, which is integrated with Bullion Star's shop and showroom, making it a convenient one-stop shop for precious metals in Singapore.

Customers can buy, store, sell, or request physical withdrawal of their bullion through My Vault Storage® online around the clock. Storage rates are competitive.

For more information, please visit Bullion Star here:

Special thanks also to Fay Durrant of the Fay J Winery in Texarkana, Texas, whose creation of GATA-label wine and donation of three cases for a drawing for our fundraising campaign's donors added much excitement to the campaign. Winners of the three cases will be selected and notified in the next few days.

The GATA-label wine has sparked so much interest that we plan to begin marketing it through the Fay J Winery so that our supporters can help sustain us even as they toast to the rise of free markets in the monetary metals.

When GATA was founded in 1999 no one involved with the organization anticipated that market rigging by governments would intensify, not lessen, and that the strugle against it would be so difficult. But this rigging can prevail only through secrecy and deception, and thanks in part to GATA's work, the world is slowly becoming aware of it. We begin the new year with gratitude, optimism, and the belief, stronger than ever, that our effort is crucial to individual liberty, limited and transparent government, and fair dealing among nations.

So we press on, borrowing as we often do from Arthur Hugh Clough:

Say not the struggle nought availeth,
The labor and the wounds are vain,
The enemy faints not, nor faileth,
And as things have been they remain.

If hopes were dupes, fears may be liars;
It may be, in yon smoke concealed,
Your comrades chase e'en now the fliers,
And, but for you, possess the field.

For while the tired waves, vainly breaking
Seem here no painful inch to gain,
Far back through creeks and inlets making
Comes silent, flooding in, the main.

And not by eastern windows only,
When daylight comes, comes in the light.
In front the sun climbs slow, how slowly,
But westward, look, the land is bright.

Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee Inc.
