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 TRIPLE your donation, making it three times as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Yesterday in Boston the United for Justice with Peace Coalition and ACLU held a rally in Copley Square to protest human rights abuses brought on by the so-called war on terror.

Throughout the week at the Democratic Convention, speaker after speaker has addressed the delegates on the issue of the invasion of Iraq, weapons of mass destruction and reconstruction. While much of the focus has been on U.S. soldiers there has been little mention of the plight of the Iraqi people and the Abu Ghraib prison abuse scandal. Yesterday in Boston the United for Justice with Peace Coalition and ACLU held a rally in Copley Square to protest human rights abuses brought on by the so-called war on terror. Rally speakers included Congressmember Denis Kucinich. Demonstrators donned orange jump suits and stood behind wire cages. Here are some of what they had to say.
