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.

Dan Kanner and Tami Johnson, both from the New Party, discuss their party’s similarities and
differences from the Labor Party. The new party stands for "a fair economy and a real democracy". They both speak about the injustices in their region of Milwalkee and their victories in
raising the minimum wage in Milwalkee. Kanner and Johnson believe that neither the democrats or the republicans represent represent the communities that they want to work for. They believe firmly in improving education and children’s services and believe that their New Party is capable of
doing so.
