About

Democracy neither lives nor dies in a place, but in a struggle. The Hard Times Review is committed to Amy Goodman’s journalist principle of “going where the silence is.” News, commentary, book reviews, and interviews at HTR primarily focus on poverty and violence in America, and cover mass incarceration, homelessness, work, police brutality, rebellion, and other related subjects. HTR is entirely reader funded.
