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.

Twenty-five years ago today the democratically elected government of Chilean President Salvador Allende was overthrown in a U.S. backed coup. Afterward, Chileans endured a dictatorship that resulted in thousands dead and imprisoned. During the current domestic scandal, views have emerged suggesting Clinton and previous presidents should have been impeached, but for different reasons. They include aiding the overthrow of a democratically elected government.

Guest:

  • Ariel Dorfmann, a former aide to Chilean President Salvador Allende.
