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.

East Timor’s students have long played a leading role in the struggle for independence. After the fall of Indonesian dictator General Suharto in 1999, University students traveled throughout East Timor holding unprecedented public forums where they demanded a referendum on independence and an end to Indonesia’s occupation. On Monday in the capitol of Dili, a small group of students on the campus of the University of East Timor spoke about their hopes for the future of their country.
