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.

We look back at one of the towering figures
of the last thirty years — activist attorney William Kunstler.
From the Freedom Rides to the Chicago Conspiracy Trial, from the
Attica prison rebellion to the siege at Wounded Knee, Bill Kunstler
was more than an eyewitness to some of the decisive moments in
recent American history — he was one of its makers.

Before Bill Kunstler died last year, he was able record on tape his
autobiography — My Life as a Radical Lawyer. He was also able to
fulfill one last dream — working as a stand up comedian. But
before we go to a rare tape of Bill Kunstler live at Caroline’s
Comedy Club in New York City, we’re going to hear excerpts from the
audio tape of his autobiography.
