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 every visitor to this site in December gave just $10 we could cover our basic operating costs for 2015. Pretty exciting, right? Please do your part today. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else in 2015.

As Madeleine Albright takes over the post of Secretary of State, the question of Cuba will likely remain at the top of the US foreign policy agenda as well as a major issue in international forums like the UN. Joining us today to talk about Cuba, the UN and US foreign policy is Phyllis Bennis, a research fellow at the Washington DC-based Institute for Policy Studies. She just returned from a trip to Cuba.

GUEST:

PHYLLIS BENNIS, a fellow at the Washington DC-based Institute for Policy Studies and author of Calling the Shots: How the US Dominates the UN.
