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. Today a generous funder will match your donation 2 to 1. That means when you give $15 today, your donation will be worth $45. So, if you've been waiting to make your contribution to Democracy Now!, today is your day. It takes just a couple of minutes to help make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

AS THE PERUVIAN HOSTAGE CRISIS ENTERS INTO ITS SECOND WEEK, THE NATURE OF PERU’S JUDICIAL SYSTEM REMAINS A KEY NEGOTIATING POINT BETWEEN THE REBEL TUPAC AMARU REVOLUTIONARY MOVEMENT AND PRESIDENT ALBERTO FUJIMORI. THE REBELS, WHO ARE HOLDING SOME 100 VIP HOSTAGES IN THE JAPANESE EMBASSY, ARE DEMANDING THE RELEASE OF HUNDREDS OF THEIR COMRADES JAILED IN PERU’S NOTORIOUSLY BRUTAL PRISONS.

GUEST: FRANCISCO SOBERON OF THE PRO-HUMAN RIGHTS ASSOCIATION IN PERU.
