Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that’s 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent journalism. Since our first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take corporate or government 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 in to Democracy Now! gave just $4, we could cover our operating expenses for the entire year. Really, that’s all it would take. Today, for Giving Tuesday, a generous donor will TRIPLE your donation, making it three times as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Protests Rock Belarus and Georgia Following Contested Elections

HeadlineNov 10, 2020

In Georgia, protests continued Monday, one day after police fired water cannons on crowds in the capital Tbilisi as they called for a rerun of recent parliamentary elections they and the country’s main opposition parties say were rigged. The election saw the ruling Georgian Dream party, which was founded by Georgia’s wealthiest man, declaring victory.

Meanwhile, protests continue in Belarus, where hundreds were again arrested over the weekend as people call for President Alexander Lukashenko to resign following August elections they say were rigged. At least nine journalists were believed to be among those arrested Sunday. On Friday, the EU imposed sanctions on Lukashenko for his violent crackdown on protests.
