Dear Democracy Now! visitor,

You turn to Democracy Now! for ad-free news you can trust. Maybe you come for our daily headlines. Maybe you come for in-depth stories that expose corporate and government abuses of power. Democracy Now! brings you crucial reporting like our coverage from the front lines of the Dakota Access pipeline protests or news about this unprecedented US presidential election—and our coverage is never paid for by the oil and gas companies or the campaigns and superPACs. We produce our daily news hour at a fraction of the budget of a commercial news operation—all without ads, government funding or corporate sponsorship. How? This model of news depends on your support. Today, less than 1% of our visitors support Democracy Now! with a donation each year. If even 3% of our website visitors donated just $8 per month, we could cover our basic operating expenses for a year. Pretty amazing right? If you visit us daily or weekly or even just once a month, now is a great time to make your monthly contribution.

Non-commercial news needs your support.

We rely on contributions from you, our viewers and listeners to do our work. If you visit us daily or weekly or even just once a month, now is a great time to make your monthly contribution.

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.
