During this 2012 election season, Democracy Now!’s Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan are on a national speaking tour to mark the 16th anniversary of the daily, independent, global TV/Radio news hour and to launch their new book, The Silenced Majority: Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance, and Hope.
On Thursday, October 11, PAC8 will host Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan in a 2-hour fundraiser at Fuller Lodge. Cost of the event is $15.00, which will include lunch (sandwich supplied by The Los Alamos Co-Op). Otowi Station Bookstore will be selling The Silenced Majority at the event (not included in cost of event).
Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan began writing a weekly column, “Breaking the Sound Barrier,” for King Features Syndicate in 2006. In their new book, The Silenced Majority, Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan provide a vivid record of the events, conflicts, and social movements shaping our society today. They give voice to ordinary people standing up to corporate and overnment power across the country and around the world. Their writing and daily work at the grassroots public TV/radio news hour Democracy Now!, carried on more than a thousand stations globally and at democracynow.org, casts in stark relief the stories of the silenced majority. These stories are set against the backdrop of the mainstream media’s bject failure, with its small circle of pundits who know so little about so much, attempting to explain the world to us and getting it so wrong.
AMY GOODMAN is an award-winning investigative journalist and syndicated columnist, author and the host of Democracy Now! airing on more than 1,000 public television and radio stations in 35 countries. Goodman is the first journalist to receive the Right Livelihood Award, widely known as the ‘Alternative Nobel Prize’ for “developing an innovative model of truly independent grassroots political journalism that brings to millions of people the alternative voices that are often excluded by the mainstream media.” The Independent of London named Amy Goodman and Democracy Now! “an inspiration”; pulsemedia.org placed Goodman at the top of their 20 Top Global Media Figures. Goodman is the author of four New York Times bestsellers, including her latest, Breaking the Sound Barrier. She co-authored her first three bestsellers, Standing Up to the Madness, Static, and The Exception to the Rulers, with her brother, journalist David Goodman.
DENIS MOYNIHAN, since helping co-found Democracy Now! as an independent production company in 2002, has participated in the organization’s growth, focusing primarily on distribution, infrastructure development, and coordinating complex live broadcasts from all continents (save Antarctica). He lives in Denver, and is the founder of a new noncommercial, community radio station in Colorado’s high country.

Parents and caregivers, please help us maintain the positive story time atmosphere by participating and being attentive.
Please attend with your preschoolers, because we know that these little folks may need special help to be successful. You are their best role models.
