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.

This is viewer supported news

In the aftermath of the 13th International AIDS conference, clearly one of the top priorities of AIDS activists around the world is getting information out and conducting information campaigns. Today we go to a community radio station in Cape Town, South Africa that is doing just that. Bush Radio was first broadcast illegally under the apartheid regime. It still considers itself opposition radio today.

Guests:

  • Zane Ibrahim, the station manager of Bush Radio in Cape Town.
  • Brenda Leonard, an administrator at Bush Radio
  • Chamille Adams, a Youth Programmer at Bush Radio.
  • Bob Lederer, a Senior Editor at Poz Magazine and a producer at Pacifica Station WBAI.
