Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes into Democracy Now! signed up for a monthly donation of just $10, we could cover our operating costs for the entire year. Please do your part today. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your first monthly gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to start a new monthly donation, please don’t delay. We’re counting on your support. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.
-Amy Goodman

BRITISH ATTEMPT TO BLOCK EU APOLOGY FOR SLAVERY

While much of the media attention in this country is focused on Israel and the US pullout from the UN World Conference Against Racism, the role of the European Union at the conference has been largely ignored. But the British government is attempting to block a European Union statement at the conference that would formally apologize for slavery. Some EU delegates say they are worried that apologizing might imply that European nations involved in slavery bore some responsibility for their actions and should pay reparations.
