Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month.

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.

As Democracy Now! reported yesterday, a group known as the Biotic Baking Brigade hit Chevron CEO Ken Derr in the face this Wednesday with three pies in protest for his company’s involvement in the killing of activists in Nigeria, as well as for polluting California’s northern coast. The brigade has targeted numerous other "corporate bad guys," including the CEO’s of bioengineering companies Monsanto and Novartis, economist Milton Friedman and San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown. For that "pieing," three members of the brigade are now serving a six-month prison sentence.
