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.

This is viewer supported news

Several dozen people are just completing the first week of their hunger strike outside the U.S. mission to the United Nations. The activists are demanding that the United States immediately lift its economic blockade against Iraq. Earlier in the week, we spoke with one of those hunger strikers — Kathy Kelly, from Voices in the Wilderness. Today we’ll hear from former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark. While he is not currently fasting, he too has repeatedly decried the sanctions. He spoke recently at a gathering of activists at the Bruderhof community in upstate New York.

  • Ramsey Clark, was the U.S. Attorney General under President Johnson.
