Since our first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take corporate or government funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes in to Democracy Now! gave just $4, we could cover our operating expenses for the entire year. Really, that’s all it would take. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Police Arrest Another 90 Activists as Climate Protests Continue in Front of White House

HeadlineOct 14, 2021

In Washington, D.C., another 90 climate activists were arrested outside the White House Wednesday demanding President Biden take real action to halt the climate crisis. This is Anthony Lorenzo Green, a Washington, D.C., community organizer and city council candidate.

Anthony Lorenzo Green: “We must repair the harm caused by environmental racism. That means we must have a world that no longer bows to the coal, oil and gas industries, that have a long history of poisoning our land and rivers. I know climate change is real because I live in a community where homes flood every year.”
