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 is viewer supported news

The Million Youth March is scheduled to take place in New York City early next month. Organizers say they expect between 2-3 million young people from around the country to fill the streets of Harlem. At last report, the City of New York is refusing to grant a permit for the march to take place in Harlem. The lack of cooperation between the two sides has made other civic leaders and elected officials concerned about safety. While other elected officials are concerned that the controversy is overshadowing the message the march is trying to send.

Guests:

  • Ahmade Ajamo, an organizer of the Million Youth March.
  • Philip Reed, a New York City Council member.
