Hi there,

You trust Democracy Now! to bring you the news stories and global headlines you won't find anywhere else.

This allows us to maintain the editorial independence you rely on—but it also means we need your help. If everyone seeing this gave just $4 a month, it would more than cover our expenses for the entire year—and today a donor will DOUBLE your first month. Please do your part. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else. Thank you so much!

HeadlineJan 19, 2018

And Paul Booth, longtime labor leader and antiwar activist, has died at the age of 74. In 1965, Booth helped lead the first major march against the Vietnam War in Washington, D.C. Through much of the 1960s, Paul Booth was a spokesperson for Students for a Democratic Society, the campus-based civil rights and antiwar group. Booth went on to organize on behalf of working people for more than four decades with AFSCME, the country’s largest public employees union. Paul Booth died Wednesday of complications from leukemia in Washington, D.C.
