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.

There were protests throughout Philadelphia yesterday, as police arrested hundreds of demonstrators. Hundreds of delegates were prevented from boarding buses to go to the convention center, as activists conducted sit-ins on main streets and blockades in front of hotel doors. Today, we are going to talk to a father and son from South Carolina. The father is a delegate to the convention and the son is a protester.

Guests:

  • Rick Beltram, a Republican delegate from South Carolina and head of his District.
  • Steve Beltram, the son of Rick and is here in Philadelphia protesting the Republican National Convention.
  • Warren Mowry, a Republican Delegate from South Carolina and head of his district.
