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.

Over 500 demonstrators planned to protest today against resumed nuclear weapons production at Los Alamos National Laboratory. The protest, believed to be the largest ever at the scandal-plagued nuclear lab, comes as devastating and dangerous fires sweep through Los Alamos threatening the nuclear lab.

Last year on Nagasaki day, there was a conference held in New Mexico called "Beyond The Bomb".

Tape:

  • Carletta Garcia, of the Pueblo of Laguna, 62 miles north of Albuquerque, and daughter of Dorothy Perly, environmental activist who recently died of cancer.
