Hi there,

Democracy Now is committed to bringing you the stories and perspectives you won't hear anywhere else, from the peace activists demanding an end to war to Indigenous leaders fighting to stop fossil fuel extraction and save the planet. Our independent reporting is only possible because we’re funded by you—not by the weapons manufacturers when we cover war or gun violence, not by the oil, gas, coal, or nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis. Can you donate $10 today to keep us going strong? Every dollar makes a difference. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Leaders Urge Decisive Action as COP24 Kicks Off in Poland

HeadlineDec 03, 2018

In Poland, the U.N. climate conference opened this weekend in Katowice, Poland, with leaders calling for swift global action. U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres said climate change is “a matter of life and death” for many nations and that the worst polluters are not doing enough to meet the goals of the 2015 Paris climate agreement. This came just one day after Trump stood as the sole leader at the G20 summit who did not sign on to a statement reaffirming support for the Paris agreement. Last year, Trump announced the U.S.’s withdrawal from the international agreement.
