Dear Friend,

In these times of COVID-19, climate chaos and elections, 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. If everyone who visits our website gave just $8, we could cover our operating costs for 2021. Really—that’s all it would take. And today a generous supporter will double your 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 donation, please do so today. Stay safe, wear a mask and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Seven Arrested at UC Berkeley Protest of Ann Coulter Speech

HeadlineNov 22, 2019

In California, over a thousand students linked arms and tried to physically block people from attending a talk by far-right TV personality Ann Coulter on the UC Berkeley campus Thursday evening. Police in riot gear escorted Coulter and her fans inside Berkeley’s famed Wheeler Hall for the talk, which was hosted by the College Republicans. Students projected a giant sign reading “Berkeley Stands United Against Hate” on the outside of the hall, while inside a student was handcuffed and removed as she disrupted Coulter’s speech. Six other protesters were arrested throughout the evening. The Southern Poverty Law Center has called Coulter “an infamous far-right attack dog” with ties to white nationalist organizations.
