Hi there,

This week Democracy Now! is bringing you live, on-the-ground coverage of the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, where you’ll hear the voices and analysis you won’t get anywhere else. In August, we’ll travel to Chicago for the Democratic National Convention. Democracy Now! doesn’t accept corporate advertising or sponsorship revenue, and we don’t take money from any government. That means we’re relying on you. Can you donate $15 to Democracy Now! today to support our RNC and DNC coverage—and so much more? Right now, a generous donor will TRIPLE your gift, which means your $15 donation is worth $45. Please do your part to help us air in-depth, substantive coverage of the conventions and the issues that matter most during the 2024 election cycle. Thank you so much—and remember, every dollar makes a difference.
-Amy Goodman

Young Lords Co-Founder Turned “Best Street Reporter on TV” Pablo Yoruba Guzmán Dies

HeadlineNov 27, 2023

Pablo Yoruba Guzmán, the visionary former minister of information of the Young Lords Party and longtime print and television reporter, has died of a heart attack. In 1969, Guzmán co-founded the New York chapter of the predominantly Puerto Rican radical group the Young Lords, which fought against police brutality, racism, U.S. imperialism and militarism. The Young Lords also provided healthcare, child care and breakfast to impoverished people — most of them Black and Latino. Pablo Guzmán went on to write for publications including The Village Voice and Rolling Stone and spent nearly two decades at the New York station WCBS. His longtime friend, Democracy Now! co-host Juan González called Guzmán “the best street reporter on TV.”
