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 troops along the border in Macedonia are waiting today to enter neighboring Kosovo and Russian troops headed toward the province after Yugoslav troops began leaving in trucks, armored cars and buses.

The leader of the Kosovo Liberation Army, Hashim Thasi, has promised that his group won’t attack retreating Serb soldiers, and also pledged to protect the rights of Kosovo’s minorities–mostly Serbs–and to work with Western leaders to transform his group of 17,000 irregular fighters for peacetime.

Guest:

  • Chris Hedges, Currently a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University and 1995-1998 Balkan Bureau Chief for The New York Times. He heads for the Balkans this Monday to report for The New York Times.
