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.

  • Voices From Belgrade and Kosovo

    Allied planes targeted transportation links and communication sites today across Yugoslavia. Local officials said a NATO attack on a coal-mining town in Central Serbia killed five civilians and injured at least 30 others. Police and army officials blamed the casualties on a series of missile attacks in the town of Aleksinac, which is about 100 miles southeast of Belgrade. More bodies were believed to be buried in the rubble.
