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.

Shows featuring Pamela Yates

Partner at Skylight Pictures, a documentary film and digital media company that focuses on human rights and social justice stories. In 1983, she collaborated with the now Nobel Peace Prize winner Rigoberta Menchú on the film When the Mountains Tremble. Yates’ most recent documentary is called Granito: How to Nail a Dictator, about building the genocide case against General Efraín Ríos Montt. She is currently working on a third film in the Guatemala trilogy called 500 Years. It looks at how the Ríos Montt Genocide trial empowered Guatemala’s nonviolent resistance movements.
