030604 Amy Goodman - Independent Media in a Time of War

Millions of people are taking to the streets around the world to say no to war. Half a million recently protested in New York City alone. But who are these people? Debate in the mainstream media often reduces them to Saddam-lovers, anti-American extremists and terrorist-sympathisers. Yet if you actually go out into the streets you see ragin' grannies, gospel singers, punk rock kids, businessmen, students, veterans, radical fairies, families with kids, and of course, hippies and anarchists. While condemning Saddam, they also reject the mentality that "you're either with us or you're with the terrorists." They are rising up and saying no to this war, not in our name. These are the people which independent media gives a voice.

Amy Goodman is the award-winning host of Democracy Now, the daily syndicated radio program. Her reporting on East Timor and Nigeria has earned her top awards. Along with Allan Nairn, she experienced a massacre of innocent civilians in East Timor. She has earned a reputation for asking hard questions of people in power. President Clinton has called her "hostile, combative and disrespectful."
