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.

ORGANIZED LABOR HAS been fiercely ATTACKed BY THE REPUBLICAN PARTY THIS ELECTION YEAR, IN PART BECAUSE THE AFL-CIO ENDORSED BILL CLINTON AND IS SPENDING TENS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO GET HIM RE-ELECTED. THIS WEEK IN SAN DIEGO, THE AFL-CIO’S PRESENCE IS MOSTLY FELT ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE CONVENTION.

GUEST: RICHARD TRUMPKA, Secretary Treasurer of the AFL-CIO and former President of the United Mine Workers.
