Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that’s 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent journalism. 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 TRIPLE your donation, making it three times as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Jury Selection Begins in Trial of Three White Men Charged with Killing Ahmaud Arbery

HeadlineOct 18, 2021

In Georgia, jury selection starts today in the trial of three white men accused of murdering Ahmaud Arbery, an unarmed 25-year-old Black man who was chased down and shot to death while out for a jog. Over the weekend, community members and Ahmaud Arbery’s family gathered outside of the Glynn County Courthouse for a pretrial rally. Another rally is planned for today. Last month, former prosecutor Jackie Johnson was indicted and arrested for interfering with the investigation and trying to prevent the arrest of two of Arbery’s killers — Greg McMichael, a former police officer, as well as his son Travis.
