Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that’s 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent journalism. Since our first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take corporate or government funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes in to Democracy Now! gave just $4, we could cover our operating expenses for the entire year. Really, that’s all it would take. Today, for Giving Tuesday, a generous donor will TRIPLE your donation, making it three times as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Unions Take to the Streets in Seattle: A Conversation with United Steelworkers of America

StoryNovember 30, 1999
Media Options

    Thousands of steelworkers marched yesterday in Seattle to protest the World Trade Organization’s trade policies. The steelworkers have been some of the most militant and vocal of all the unions that have converged on Seattle.

    Today, thousands of labor activists and many others are marching here in what is expected to be one of the largest demonstrations in recent history. Their actions are expected to shut down the city, and may possibly prevent some of the WTO’s sessions from taking place. The activists will be joined by some local workers, including taxi drivers and postal workers, who will not be going into work today.

    Guest:

    • William Klinefelter, Assistant to the President of the American Steelworkers Union, and legislative and political director of the union.
