Dear Democracy Now! visitor,

You turn to Democracy Now! for ad-free news you can trust. Maybe you come for our daily headlines. Maybe you come for in-depth stories that expose corporate and government abuses of power. Democracy Now! brings you crucial reporting like our coverage from the front lines of the standoff at Standing Rock or news about the movements fighting for peace, racial and economic justice, immigrant rights and LGBTQ equality. We produce our daily news hour at a fraction of the budget of a commercial news operation—all without ads, government funding or corporate sponsorship. How is this possible? Only with your support. If every visitor to this site in December gave just $10 we could cover our basic operating costs for 2017. Pretty exciting, right? So, if you've been waiting to make your contribution to Democracy Now!, today is your day. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else in 2017.

Non-commercial news needs your support.

We rely on contributions from you, our viewers and listeners to do our work. If you visit us daily or weekly or even just once a month, now is a great time to make your monthly contribution.

Please do your part today.

F2C: Freedom to Connect 2013

Special BroadcastMarch 04, 2013
Internet

    This Monday and Tuesday Democracy Now! will broadcast live from F2C: Freedom to Connect, and host a livestream of the event for both days on our website. The conference brings people together to promote internet freedom and preserve internet values such as universal connectivity. Aaron Swartz, the late Internet freedom advocate who took his own life earlier this year, gave the keynote address here in 2012. This year’s event is "dedicated to the work Aaron still had left to do."

    Tune in to see Democracy Now! from 8-9am ET onsite at the conference for our regular show each day, which will feature guests at Freedom to Connect. Afterward we will livestream the panels and speeches, including an address by Aaron’s partner, Taren Stinebrickner-Kauffman. On Tuesday Glenn Greenwald gives the keynote address.
