Dear Friend,

In these times of COVID-19, climate chaos and elections, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on the pandemic or the uprisings against police brutality—or the climate crisis—our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We count on YOU to make our work possible. If everyone who visits our website gave just $8, we could cover our operating costs for 2021. Really—that’s all it would take. And today a generous supporter will double your donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will go twice as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Stay safe, wear a mask and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Vermont: Brick Thrown Through Window of Activist Building with “Black Lives Matter” Sign

HeadlineMar 28, 2016

In what activists say is a growing trend of racist hate fueled by the 2016 presidential campaign, unknown attackers in Burlington, Vermont, threw a brick through a window of a community center with a “Black Lives Matter” sign displayed in the window. The building houses organizations that work for migrant and workers’ rights. Racial justice organizer Senowa Mize-Fox condemned the attack late last week.

Senowa Mize-Fox: “It’s sad to me that I’ve gotten to the point where I’m not surprised that these acts of hate continue to happen, that racially motivated attacks, in a community that prides itself on being progressive and liberal, continue to happen.”
