Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today. It takes just a couple of minutes to do your part to make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

This is viewer supported news

In 1990, a bomb ripped through the car of two Earth First activists who were on their way to an event to save the Redwood Forests. Judi Bari and Darryl Cherney were rushed to the hospital with serious injuries. Instead of conducting a thorough investigation of the attack, the FBI and Oakland police branded Bari and Cherney as terrorists and arrested the two environmentalists for allegedly transporting illegal explosives. Judi Bari is suing the FBI for false arrest, illegal search and seizure and denial of equal protection of the law. Today in a federal court room in California, the FBI will attempt to strip away at her case by asking the judge to dismiss some of the charges.

GUEST: JUDI BARI
