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.

Half a Million Attend Peace March in Barcelona, Spain

HeadlineAug 28, 2017

In Spain, a half a million people poured into the streets of Barcelona on Saturday for a peace march, following the attack earlier this month in which 15 people died after a van plowed into a crowded walkway along Las Ramblas—the city’s most famous avenue. The protest was the largest in Barcelona since the 2003 march against the Iraq War. This is protester Gemma Figueres.

Gemma Figueres: “We have to say, we are not afraid. But you obviously feel it can happen to you at any time, and that is scary. But fear cannot beat us, and we cannot stand still. We have to show that we keep living. That is what we have to do.”
