Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today. It takes just a couple of minutes to do your part to make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

NATO warplanes took off from the Aviano airbase in northeastern Italy today in the sixth day of the bombardment of Yugoslavia. NATO officials also said today that one of the ethnic Albanian negotiators at the Kosovo peace talks in Paris has been executed by Serb forces in Kosovo.

Tens of thousands of ethnic Albanian refugees have arrived in Albania today, and thousands more are expected, as reports intensify of a campaign of ethnic cleansing in Kosovo by Serb forces. Many refugees reported that Serbian police and paramilitary units forced them to leave their communities and then torched their villages.

Guests:

  • Tony Benn, British Member of Parliament for the Labor Party. Speaking from London.
  • Andreas Zumach, United Nations correspondent for German media in Geneva, including the daily Die Tages Zie Tung. He has covered the Balkans since 1992 and just returned from Sarajevo, Bosnia.
