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 DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

NYC Communities and Local Officials Condemn National Grid Pipeline and Price Hikes

HeadlineOct 20, 2021

Here in New York City, elected leaders joined activists at a press conference outside National Grid’s headquarters protesting the North Brooklyn pipeline and proposed price hikes to 2 million New Yorkers’ gas bills. This is New York City councilmember and Democratic candidate for Brooklyn borough president, Antonio Reynoso.

Councilmember Antonio Reynoso: “They decided to spend millions of dollars on infrastructure for natural gas. And then they want us, the ones that are going to be suffering because of their decisions, to pay the bill on the future harm to our health. And we want to stop that.”
