Hi there,

You turn to Democracy Now! for ad-free news you can trust. This weekend, we're broadcasting live from D.C. as students and people of all ages converge on the capital to demand action on gun control. Our coverage is produced at a fraction of the cost of a commercial news operation, without ads, paywalls, government funds or corporate sponsors. How is this possible? Only with your support. If you and everyone visiting this website gave just $4, it would cover our operating costs for 2018. Pretty exciting, right? Please do your part. It takes just a few minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

Non-commercial news needs your support.

We rely on contributions from you, our viewers and listeners to do our work. If you visit us daily or weekly or even just once a month, now is a great time to make your monthly contribution.

Please do your part today.


Wall Street’s Radical History

Media Options

You’re listening to Pacifica Radio’s Democracy Now, broadcasting for the first time from our new home on Wall Street.

That’s right — Pacifica station WBAI has just completed its move to Wall Street, and so the Voice of the People now broadcasts from the Belly of the Beast. We will be the fly on the Wall, sometimes off the Wall, certainly up against the Wall…

We follow in a proud tradition of progressive journalism that is also this area’s heritage — from the first African American newspaper, founded in this area in 1928, to the American newspaper that employed the original Marxist, Karl Marx, as its foreign correspondent.

Joining the program to give all listeners a tour of the new digs and their surroundings is Bruce Kayton. For eight years now, Bruce Kayton has been guiding people on historical adventures through Manhattan neighborhoods on Radical Walking Tours. These excursions into New York City’s radical past continue to memorialize the heroes of the culture of resistance. Kayton’s landscape is dotted not with the rich heroes and their landmarks (who are found in traditional guides), but the pivotal figures and sites in the ongoing battle of the oppressed in the struggle for freedom, economic equality, and recognition.


  • Bruce Kayton, has been a political activist for 20 years and a tour guide for almost ten.
