You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on this global crisis, our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We're bringing you stories from the front lines, and voices you simply won't hear anywhere else—but we’re counting on you to make it possible. Today, a generous supporter will DOUBLE your donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift goes twice as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to support Democracy Now! with a donation, please do so today. Stay safe, and thank you so much.

Western media attention remains riveted on the U.S.-Europe split over attacking Iraq. But the vast majority of rest of the world is also opposed. We just heard Nelson Mandela’s views, about how the African Union issued a unanimous statement about the war, and about how South African President Thabo Mbeki will be attempting to help Iraq disarm.

We go now to South America, to Porto Alegre, Brazil, where the World Social Forum was recently held.

World-renowned Indian author Arundhati Roy spoke out against Bush’s plans to attack Iraq. She won the Booker Prize for her book, 'The God of Small Things.'
