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.

With less than a week remaining before Sunday’s run-off election in Yugoslavia, truck and taxi drivers blockaded roads and bridges, students stayed home and factories closed throughout Yugoslavia today as opposition forces began a national strike–the first since World War II.

Democracy Now reporter Jeremy Scahill joins us in the streets of Belgrade where tens of thousands of strikers have gathered.

Guest:

  • Jeremy Scahill, Democracy Now correspondent in Belgrade.
