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.

Seattle: Anti-fascist Activist Shot at Protest Against Neo-Nazi Milo Yiannopoulos

HeadlineJan 23, 2017

And in Seattle, an activist is in the hospital recovering after being critically shot during a protest against a speech by white nationalist Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos hosted at the University of Washington. The 32-year-old activist, who has not been named, is an anti-racist organizer and a member of the Industrial Workers of the World. Milo Yiannopoulos is a leading white supremacist who has a long history of making racist, sexist and xenophobic statements. He has faced protests at multiple university speeches in recent months. The shooter was released by police on Saturday after he claimed the shooting was in self-defense.
