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

Peace Activist Ted Glick Nearing End of Month-Long Fast to Defeat Trump

HeadlineOct 30, 2020

Longtime peace and justice activist Ted Glick is continuing a month-long hunger strike ahead of the presidential election as he hopes to encourage undecided voters to support Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Glick launched a hunger strike on October 3 and will conclude it on Election Day. He spoke to Democracy Now! last night.

Ted Glick: “I’m on day 27 of what will end up being a 32-day fast to defeat Trump. I’ve lost 30 pounds so far. I’m doing this to underline the urgency of our situation and how people who get it on how bad Trump is, they need to vote for Biden, in the battleground states, in particular. We need to stand up now for our rights, our people, our climate, and doing it by getting Trump out of there.”
