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.

Fires. Floods. This in the place that is the home of the world’s first atomic bomb, Los Alamos. It almost sounds biblical. In fact years after those bombs were dropped J. Robert Oppenheimer, the scientist who headed the project that developed those bombs said, "I am become death destroyer of worlds." Today, if New Mexico were to secede from the U.S., it would hold the third largest nuclear stockpile in the world. Today we take a nuclear tour of the state of New Mexico.

Guest:

  • Don Hancock, with the Southwest Research and Information Center, a non-profit organization in Albuquerque, New Mexico that works on environmental and social justice issues.
