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.

As the Bush administration gears up for war against Iraq, artists and musicians are taking a more prominent role in giving voice to antiwar sentiments throughout the world. There will be a massive anti-war rally tomorrow, January 18th, in Washington, D.C. If the rally of October 26th is any indication, hundreds of thousands of people will come from around the country and the world to say, "Not in Our Name."

The British band Chumbawamba will perform live at the peace rally to express their outrage at this proposed "pre-emptive" strike by the President Select. Four members of the band have joined us in the studio, obediently providing musical interludes, and now we would like to give them a chance to speak.


  • Alice Nutter, with the British band, Chumbawamba.
  • Boff, with the British band, Chumbawamba.
  • Neil Ferguson, with the British band, Chumbawamba.
  • Lou Watts, with the British band, Chumbawamba.
