Hi there,

You turn to Democracy Now! for ad-free news you can trust. This weekend, we're broadcasting live from D.C. as students and people of all ages converge on the capital to demand action on gun control. Our coverage is produced at a fraction of the cost of a commercial news operation, without ads, paywalls, government funds or corporate sponsors. How is this possible? Only with your support. If you and everyone visiting this website gave just $4, it would cover our operating costs for 2018. Pretty exciting, right? Please do your part. It takes just a few minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

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.


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.
