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 DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Britain Stuns World by Voting to Leave the European Union

HeadlineJun 24, 2016

Britain has stunned the world by voting to leave the European Union, becoming the first major country to leave the bloc in EU history. British Prime Minister David Cameron announced his resignation after leading the campaign to keep Britain in the European Union. He’ll step down in October. The Guardian calls the decision a “turning point in British history to rank alongside the two world wars of the 20th century.” Financial markets plunged after the news, with the value of the British pound dropping to the lowest level against the dollar since 1985. We’ll have more on this historic vote after headlines.
