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

Earlier this month, the Washington Post ran a story called "Shell’s New Worldview" which was ostensibly a profile of Mark Moody-Stuart the new head of Royal Dutch Shell.

Many activists say that the Shell of 1995 is the Shell of today. In fact, the Center for Constitutional Rights has an ongoing lawsuit against the company for its complicity in the execution of Nigerian playwright and activist Ken Saro-Wiwa and others who opposed Shell’s work in the Niger Delta.

Guests:

  • Judith Chomsky, one of the attorneys leading the suit against Shell.
  • Jenny Green, a lawyer for the Center for Constitutional Rights.
