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 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.

This Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is the biggest shopping day of the year. It is also a day when many human rights and labor organizations remind us about the workers who labor in sweatshops around the world to make the toys, clothing and other gifts for the Christmas season. Today we are joined by the Rev. Billy of the Church of Stop Shopping, which has declared entire city blocks "Starbucks and Disney-free" areas.

Guests:

  • Rev. Billy, from the Church of Stop Shopping.
  • Brother Bill Henry, organist with the Church of Stop Shopping.
