Some of Mike Hastie’s work can be found on the The Portland Alliance, an alternative progressive media source, which reports on issues that they describe as “ignored or distorted by the corporate-dominated mainstream press.”

Bruce K. Gagnon describes Hastie as “fierce and honest to the bone” and goes on to explain that Hastie was on the first Veterans For Peace delegation to Jeju Island, South Korea.
