The award-winning host of the daily international current affairs programme Democracy Now! Breaks through the media's lies, sound-bites and silence in this wide-ranging new collection of articles. In a lively and accessible selection of texts, the voices often excluded from the mainstream are given a powerful platform - from courageous American soldiers who oppose the war to victims of police violence. Amy Goodman proves to the powerful that independent journalism can and should take part in the struggle for a just, better world.
