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. Today a generous funder will match your donation 2 to 1. That means when you give $15 today, your donation will be worth $45. So, if you've been waiting to make your contribution to Democracy Now!, today is your day. It takes just a couple of minutes to help make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

We now turn to the words of Mumia Abu-Jamal, journalist, author and former Black Panther who is currently on Pennsylvania’s death row. Although we are prevented from interviewing Abu-Jamal or recording his voice, we are able to air his words read by others thanks to the Prison Radio Project. On the first of every month we have played the essays and commentaries of Mumia Abu Jamal read by actors, writers, artists and activists. The late environmental activist Judi Bari read today’s commentary.

Tape:

  • Judi Bari, read a commentary by Mumia Abu Jamal.
