Hi there,

You trust Democracy Now! to bring you the news stories and global headlines you won't find anywhere else. But did you know that Democracy Now! never accepts money from advertisers, corporate underwriters or governments? This allows us to maintain the editorial independence you rely on—but it also means we need your help. If everyone seeing this gave just $4 a month, it would more than cover our expenses for the entire year—and today a donor will DOUBLE your first month. Please do your part. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else. Thank you so much!

As the country marked Columbus Day, the day that celebrates Christopher Columbus’ “discovery” of America, Native Americans continue their protest. This weekend in Denver more than 140 people were arrested for blocking a Columbus Day parade while in Washington State, Yakama Nation leaders are asking the US attorney in Spokane to enforce an 1830’s federal law prohibiting the sale of liquor on Indian land.

Winona LaDuke is running for vice president on the Green Party ticket. The Ojibwe activist lives on the White Earth reservation in Northern Minnesota.

The Green Party has leaped in the polls to between 7 and 8% after the first two official debates, from which, ironically, Presidential candidate Ralph Nader and Winona LaDuke were excluded.

Police threatened Nader with arrest at the Boston debate. LaDuke was in Danville Kentucky last Thursday, but was not invited to debate her opponents Joe Lieberman and Dick Cheney. She joins us today.

Guest:

  • Winona La Duke, an Ojibwe activist and the Vice Presidential Candidate for the Green Party.
