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.

President Clinton’s top cabinet officials will make Washington’s case for air strikes in Iraq today in Columbus Ohio. Though the meeting has been dubbed a "Public Town Hall Meeting" by the administration, there are some citizens who feel it is not public enough and plan to hold an alternative meeting simultaneously outside the gates of the CNN-sponsored event.

Guests:

  • Mark Stansbury, coordinator of the Middle East Peace Committee in Columbus, Ohio, and one of the organizers of Wednesday’s demonstration at Ohio State University. Call (614)252-9255.
  • Ron Kovic, disabled Vietnam veteran, author of ??Born on the Fourth of July and an anti-war activist for 30 years.
