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.

Yesterday, rescuers loaded corpses onto a truck and combed the wreckage for more at a Serbian sanatorium hit in a NATO missile strike. At least 17 people died when three missiles blasted into a clinic and geriatric ward of the Surdulica sanatorium, housing Serb elderly and refugees from the 1991-95 wars in Croatia and Bosnia, according to eyewitnesses.

The sanatorium, located in a wooded area outside Surdulica, was used to cure lung diseases and was hone to geriatric patients, mostly Serb refugees from Croatia and Bosnia. The hospital’s manager said the hospital had treated civilians only.

Guests:

  • Jeremy Scahill, Pacifica reporter, reporting from Belgrade.
  • Laura Flanders, reporting on Serb military deserters in Hungary.
