Hi there,

Democracy Now is committed to bringing you the stories and perspectives you won't hear anywhere else, from the peace activists demanding an end to war to Indigenous leaders fighting to stop fossil fuel extraction and save the planet. Our independent reporting is only possible because we’re funded by you—not by the weapons manufacturers when we cover war or gun violence, not by the oil, gas, coal, or nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis. Can you donate $10 today to keep us going strong? Every dollar makes a difference. Right now a generous donor will TRIPLE your donation, making it three times as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Jeff "Free" Luers

Jeff “Free” Luers spent nine-and-a-half years in prison for setting three SUVs on fire at a car dealership in Eugene, Oregon. No one was hurt in the fire. Luers has said he committed the act to raise awareness about global warming. Luers was originally sentenced to twenty-three years, a longer sentence than some convicted murders. The sentence was overturned and reduced in 2008.
