Hi there,

Can you donate $10 per month to support Democracy Now!’s independent journalism all year long? Since our very first broadcast in 1996, we’ve refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. When Democracy Now! covers war and peace or the climate crisis, we’re not brought to you by the weapons manufacturers or the oil, gas, coal or nuclear companies. When we cover healthcare, we’re not brought to you by the insurance industry or Big Pharma. Our journalism is powered by YOU. But that means we can’t do our work without you.Right now, a generous donor will DOUBLE your gift, which means your $10 donation this month will be worth $20 to Democracy Now! Please do your part today. Every dollar counts. Thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Afghan rescue workers dug through the rubble of the U.N.-funded de-mining office in Kabul this morning after a U.S.missile scored a direct hit, killing four people. The men killed worked for the Afghan Technical Consultants, which had an office in a village two miles east of Kabul. The building was totally destroyed, prompting the UN to issue an appeal to the international community in general ­the US and Britain in particular ­ not to attack civilians as the ybomb Afghanistan.

The destruction of the landmines removal office is a heavy blow. Afghanistan is already one of the most heavilymined places on earth, and the US and British attacks on the country are expected to make the threat posed by landmines even worse, as tens of thousands of people flee their homes.

Guest:

  • Mary Wareham, former coordinator of the US Campaign to Ban Landmines, she now works at Human Rights Watchon land mines issues.
