Al-Jazeera: Being There

Abby Zimet

With over a million people converging in Cairo, Al-Jazeera continues its singularly courageous and comprehensive coverage. We are grateful to and humbled by them, we applaud them, we thank them. Ongoing live stream here, and more remarkable video of protesters hanging Mubarak in effigy. Also, a vital reminder here by Jeremy Scahill on the irony/hypocrisy of the sudden U.S. support for Al-Jazeera after years of opposition to it. 

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
