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.

A Turkish peacekeeper was killed and five German soldiers were injured in two separate incidents involving unexploded ordinances in southwest Kosovo.

The Turkish soldier was killed yesterday when an unidentified explosive went off in a Turkish camp, and the Germans were injured when a member of a foot patrol stepped on a land mine yesterday.

Meanwhile in Serbia, street protests continue against Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic, with thousands gathering yesterday in Belgrade, Nis, Novi Sad and other cities. Officials of the Alliance for Change, a loose coalition of opposition groups, insisted that the rallies and the campaign to oust Milosevic will continue. They also indicated that they will use the rallies to press for early elections under fair conditions.

Guest:

  • Jeremy Scahill, Democracy Now! Belgrade correspondent.
