Hi there,

Can you donate $10 per month to support Democracy Now!’s independent journalism all year long? Since our very first broadcast in 1996, we’ve refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. When Democracy Now! covers war and peace or the climate crisis, we’re not brought to you by the weapons manufacturers or the oil, gas, coal or nuclear companies. When we cover healthcare, we’re not brought to you by the insurance industry or Big Pharma. Our journalism is powered by YOU. But that means we can’t do our work without you.Right now, a generous donor will DOUBLE your gift, which means your $10 donation this month will be worth $20 to Democracy Now! Please do your part today. Every dollar counts. Thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Fracking

Democracy Now! reports on the controversial oil and gas extraction hydraulic fracturing process, known as fracking. The practice involves blasting sand, water and toxic chemicals deep into shale rock to release oil and gas, a process which can contaminate water supplies and pollute the air. Many communities are concerned about adverse public health effects for people that live near fracking sites.
