  1. Dear Readers,

    Democracy is on the march.

    It started in Tunisia, spread to Egypt, and continues to gain momentum in Iran, Iraq, Libya, Algeria, Yemen, Jordan, Bahrain and even murmurs in Saudi Arabia.

    Overnight, an army of Bahraini forces stormed the rally point where pro-democracy forces gathered. People who want to have a say in their governance were beaten, trampled and even shot dead in the street. The waves of change are in motion, but this struggle will never be easy – and it won’t be over anytime soon.

    As the march continues overseas, Truthout is here to be a US voice for peace and democracy. We reject the corporate empire which plunders the land and oceans, exploits and poisons the people, and controls governments across the globe.

    Our analyses of the ongoing international events from leaders like Ellen Brown, Stephen Zunes, Robert Naiman, Michael Winship and Noam Chomsky chart a clear path away from corporate empire and towards international democracy.

    Help us continue to bring peaceful thinking to the political discussion. Together, Truthout and the people who read, share and support our work will be a part of this global healing. Only together can we let go of our fears and stand up for democracy.
