Dear Friend,

This month, Democracy Now! turns 25—that’s 25 years of bringing you the voices and stories you won’t hear in the corporate media. Democracy Now! has always refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. Nothing is more important to us than telling you the truth. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. Please make your contribution of $25 or more in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love. Wearing two is even better.
-Amy Goodman

Armenian Villagers Burn Their Homes as They Withdraw from Nagorno-Karabakh

HeadlineNov 16, 2020

In the southern Caucasus Mountains, thousands of ethnic Armenians have set their homes on fire as they began a mass exodus from the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, making way for Azerbaijani forces to take control of the region. The civilian withdrawal began as Russian peacekeepers arrived to oversee the transfer of power in Nagorno-Karabakh to Azerbaijan, the victor of a war with Armenia that broke out on September 27. It was the worst fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh since the breakup of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s, when conflict killed some 20,000 people and displaced a million others — most of them Azeris.
