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.

Once again, NATO is acknowledging that one of its bombs missed its target and landed in a residential neighborhood in Southern Serbia. According to Serb authorities, yesterday’s attack killed at least 17 people, destroyed 50 houses and damaged 600 others in the town of Surdulica. While NATO continues to insist that it fires only on targets that are part of President Slobodan Milosevic’s Kosovo "war machine", it has so far killed civilians on at least five separate bombings. Just this past Friday, 16 employees of Serbian television and radio were killed in a NATO strike on its headquarters.
