Amy Goodman appeared in Silver City in 2009 in a benefit for GMCR and we are honored to present her once again.
Amy and Democracy Now! are at the core of GMCR’s vision of community media in Silver City. After 10 years as producer of WBAI/Pacifica/NY’s Evening News, Amy launched Democracy Now in 1995. During and since that time, Democracy Now’s audience, recognition, significance and credibility have soared and it is the most accomplished and highest rated progressive news outlet throughout the world.
This appearance is part of the 100 city The Silenced Majority tour that commenced following DN!’s extended coverage of the Republican and Democratic conventions and will continue through the presidential election in November. The Silenced Majority is her new book co-authored with longtime associate Denis Moynihan and she and Denis will be available to autograph books after she speaks.
Subtitled Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance and Hope, it chronicles the recent struggles during which the Occupy Movement and Arab Spring have “shaken the windows and rattled the walls” of convention and the international status quo.
Each stop on the tour includes a benefit for a local community media outlet. GMCR is honored to be selected here in Silver City and urge you to attend to show your support for local community media and the extraordinary work that Amy, Denis and the Democracy Now! team do every day.
