Add RequestMiddleware to your MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES settings Then, when you need request in special cases, call get_request(), which returns the request object. This has to be used in very special cases.

try:
    from threading import local
except ImportError:
    from django.utils._threading_local import local

_thread_locals = local()


def get_request():
    return getattr(_thread_locals, 'request', None)

class RequestMiddleware(object):
    """Saves the request in thread local"""
    def process_request(self, request):
        _thread_locals.request = request

Does this work without side-effects? Having request in the thread could simplify things sometimes...
