Hi there,

Can you donate $10 per month to support Democracy Now!’s independent journalism all year long? Since our very first broadcast in 1996, we’ve refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. When Democracy Now! covers war and peace or the climate crisis, we’re not brought to you by the weapons manufacturers or the oil, gas, coal or nuclear companies. When we cover healthcare, we’re not brought to you by the insurance industry or Big Pharma. Our journalism is powered by YOU. But that means we can’t do our work without you.Right now, a generous donor will DOUBLE your gift, which means your $10 donation this month will be worth $20 to Democracy Now! Please do your part today. Every dollar counts. Thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Song Premiere: “Time Dreams” by The Pines with John Trudell

Web ExclusiveJanuary 15, 2016

On today’s episode of Democracy Now! we premiered the song “Time Dreams”–a collaboration between the Minneapolis folk band The Pines and the late Native American activist and poet John Trudell who died in December at the age of 69.

John Trudell was the spokesman of the American Indian Movement during the 1969 occupation of Alcatraz Island in the San Francisco Bay, where he set up a radio broadcast called Radio Free Alcatraz. Trudell later served as the head of the American Indian Movement for most of the 1970s. He was also a poet who combined spoken word and music for more than a dozen albums.

“Time Dreams” appears on The Pines’ forthcoming album Above The Prairie (Red House Records).
