Hi there,

Democracy Now! doesn’t belong to any corporation, government or political party. Our daily news hour belongs to you, our listeners, viewers and readers. You’re the reason we exist. In these times of climate chaos, rising authoritarianism and war, Democracy Now! needs your help more than ever to hold the powerful to account and amplify the voices of the scholars, scientists, activists, artists and everyday people who are working to save democracy—and the planet.Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE all donations to our daily news hour. That means your gift of $10 is worth $20 to Democracy Now! Please do your part to keep our independent journalism going strong. Every dollar counts. Thank you so much, and stay safe.

S. Brian Willson

Vietnam veteran whose wartime experiences transformed him into a pacifist and an activist. On September 1, 1987, he was nearly killed by a U.S. Navy munitions train while engaging in a nonviolent blockade in protest of weapons shipments to El Salvador. He now uses two prosthetic legs and a three-wheeled handcycle to “walk.” His new memoir is called Blood on the Tracks: The Life and Times of S. Brian Willson.
