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.

Among the critics of the WTO is also California State Senator Tom Hayden, who participated in some of the protests against the World Trade Organization. He is among the WTO critics who raise concerns over the trade organization’s ability to override local, state and national laws and regulations, and impose its own set of trade standards on communities around the world. Juan and I had the chance to interview Senator Hayden yesterday at a hotel just across the street from the Westin Hotel, where President Clinton and hundreds of WTO delegates hunkered down.

Guests:

  • Tom Hayden, California State Senator
