Dear Friend,

In these times of COVID-19, climate chaos and elections, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on the pandemic or the uprisings against police brutality—or the climate crisis—our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We count on YOU to make our work possible. If everyone who visits our website gave just $8, we could cover our operating costs for 2021. Really—that’s all it would take. And today, a generous supporter will DOUBLE your donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will 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. Stay safe, wear a mask and thank you so much.

As Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is scheduled to visit an illegal Israeli settlement in the occupied West Bank this week, over 40 House Democrats are calling on him to condemn the illegal demolition of the Bedouin community of Khirbet Humsah in the Jordan Valley by Israeli forces earlier this month, which left dozens of people homeless. The effort was led by Wisconsin Congressmember Mark Pocan, who said in a statement, “There is no excuse for the de facto annexation of Palestinian land, and America cannot remain silent in the face of these human rights abuses any longer.”
