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.

White House Moves G8 Meeting from Chicago to Camp David

The White House has moved the upcoming G8 meeting from Chicago to the heavily guarded Camp David in Maryland. Chicago was preparing to hold back-to-back meetings in May of the G8 and NATO. The NATO meeting is still happening in Chicago as planned. Protest groups have been planning large demonstrations to coincide with both meetings. Joe Iosbaker, head of the United National Antiwar Committee in Chicago, described the decision to move the G8 meeting to Camp David as a major victory. He said, "The administration is taking G8 someplace where they won’t have to face the people who suffer under their policies."
