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 2016. And, today a generous funder will match your donation dollar for dollar. That means when you give $10 today, your donation will be worth $20. 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 2016.

  • Indonesia

    Tuesday, the House will vote on military training aid to the military dictatorship of Indonesia. Most American media have ignored the decades of brutal rule in the world’s fourth largest nation. Amy Goodman has been following the Indonesian regime for years and has covered the its occupation of East Timor, where the Indonesian military has killed over 200,000 civilians. Amy was in East Timor during a peaceful march in a cemetery when Indonesian troops massacred protesters and pointed their U.S. weapons at her as well. President Clinton promised to "do the right thing" on Indonesia, but has done nothing in his position of power to challenge the military dictatorship and advance the cause of human rights there.
