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. 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.

Over 2,000 New York City high school and college students took to the streets yesterday to protest US war preparations for Iraq.

Meanwhile, students at the New School protested against New School President Bob Kerrey’s role in the Committee for the Liberation of Iraq. The Committee is a White House-approved group formed to press for the toppling of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. Other members on the Committee are former Secretary of State George P. Shultz, the Teamsters leader James P. Hoffa and the former House speaker, Newt Gingrich. Senators John McCain, Republican of Arizona, and Joseph I. Lieberman, Democrat of Connecticut, are expected to be the group’s honorary Congressional co-chairmen.

We are joined by Sarah Grey, one of the New School students involved in the protest.

Guest:

  • Sarah Grey, New School student.
