Hi there,

Democracy Now is committed to bringing you the stories and perspectives you won't hear anywhere else, from the peace activists demanding an end to war to Indigenous leaders fighting to stop fossil fuel extraction and save the planet. Our independent reporting is only possible because we’re funded by you—not by the weapons manufacturers when we cover war or gun violence, not by the oil, gas, coal, or nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis. Can you donate $10 today to keep us going strong? Every dollar makes a difference. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

As Madeleine Albright takes over the post of Secretary of State, the question of Cuba will likely remain at the top of the US foreign policy agenda as well as a major issue in international forums like the UN. Joining us today to talk about Cuba, the UN and US foreign policy is Phyllis Bennis, a research fellow at the Washington DC-based Institute for Policy Studies. She just returned from a trip to Cuba.
