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.

This past Saturday marked a milestone in US history. On that day 70 years ago — August 23, 1927 — Italian anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartalomeo Vanzetti were executed. At the time, the case of Sacco and Vanzetti was the most celebrated and contested trial in US history and, arguably, it remains so to this day.

Taped excerpt:
• The Passion of Sacco and Vanzetti produced by Toby Cole and Ed Markman of Pacifica station KPFA in 1990.
