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.

Extinction Rebellion Actions in London Demand Fossil Fuel Divestment

HeadlineAug 30, 2021

In Britain, climate activists with Extinction Rebellion have been staging a series of daily actions to draw attention to the climate catastrophe. On Friday, demonstrators poured red paint symbolizing “blood money” on banks in London’s financial district to call out their ties to the fossil fuel industry. On Sunday, activists rallied outside London’s Science Museum to protest Shell’s funding of the museum’s exhibition about greenhouse gases. Elsewhere in London, Christian climate activists, including several clergy members, staged a protest inside St. Paul’s Cathedral to demand the Church of England stop investing in fossil fuels.
