Hi there,

Today is Giving Tuesday, a day dedicated to supporting non-profits. Democracy Now! is a free source of independent news for tens of millions of people around the world, but less than 1% of our global audience donates to support our critical journalism. Let’s pick up the percentage! In honor of Giving Tuesday, a generous contributor will TRIPLE your donation to Democracy Now!, which means if you give $10, we’ll get $30. Please don’t miss out on this opportunity to triple your impact. Democracy Now! doesn't accept advertising income, corporate underwriting or government funding because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. We rely on you for support—and we’re counting on you right now. I hope you’ll give as much as you can today. Every dollar makes a difference. Thanks so much.

New York: White Supremacists Unleash Violence on Manhattan Street

HeadlineOct 15, 2018

In New York City, members of the white supremacist group known as the Proud Boys violently attacked people on a Manhattan street Friday night, after attending a talk by the group’s founder, Gavin McInnes, at the Metropolitan Republican Club. In video captured of the incident, dozens of members of the extremist group can be seen kicking and punching anti-fascist protesters while shouting homophobic expletives.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo blamed Trump and Republicans for the violence, calling it part of an effort to “fire up their base” for the midterm elections. The Southern Poverty Law Center classifies the Proud Boys as a hate group, and some of its members joined in the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville last August.
