Dear Friend,

In these times of elections, climate chaos and COVID-19, 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. Today, a generous supporter will DOUBLE your new monthly 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 monthly donation and provide us with support we can rely on all year, please do so today. Stay safe, and thank you so much.

WikiLeaks Sparks Anti-IMF Protests in Greece

HeadlineApr 05, 2016

Anti-IMF protests were held in Greece yesterday days after WikiLeaks published the transcript of a recent conference call of three senior IMF officials discussing tactics to apply pressure on Greece, Germany and the EU to reach a debt deal in April. During the call, one IMF official said some kind of “event” was needed to force Greece into concluding talks over its debt reforms. While Greek’s finance minister met with lenders in Athens on Monday, protesters gathered outside.

Panagiotis Lafazanis, leader of the Popular Unity Party: “This country doesn’t need bailouts. It needs freedom, democracy, independence, sovereignty, justice. That’s what we are fighting for and protesting over. And we will win.”
