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. Today a generous funder will match your donation 2 to 1. That means when you give $15 today, your donation will be worth $45. So, if you've been waiting to make your contribution to Democracy Now!, today is your day. It takes just a couple of minutes to help make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

At the beginning of every month Democracy Now! airs "All Things Censored," commentaries written by journalist and death row resident Mumia Abu-Jamal, and produced by Noelle Hanrahan. Recordings of Mumia’s voice have been banned by the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections and so each month we bring to you notable people recording his new essays.

Ramona Africa is the Minister of Communication for the MOVE organization. She is the sole adult survivor of the bombing of the MOVE house on May 13th, 1985 that killed 11 people, including 5 children. She served eight years on charges of resisting arrest stemming from that state sponsored massacre. Today she leads the fight for the freedom of the MOVE 9 incarcerated in Pennsylvania prisons.
