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.

Forty years ago, in 1957, Ghana became the first sub-Saharan African country to win its independence. To mark the beginning of the decolonization process, scholars, activists, international diplomats and heads of state gathered in London this past October for a conference on Africa at 40. Today, we play the remainder of a speech by President Robert Mugabe of Ziimbabwe.

Tape:

  • President Robert Mugabe, of Zimbabwe. He is presently the chairman of the Organization of African Unity or OAU.
