Hi there,

Today is Giving Tuesday, a day dedicated to supporting non-profits. Democracy Now! is a free source of independent news for tens of millions of people around the world, but less than 1% of our global audience donates to support our critical journalism. Let’s pick up the percentage! In honor of Giving Tuesday, a generous contributor will TRIPLE your donation to Democracy Now!, which means if you give $10, we’ll get $30. Please don’t miss out on this opportunity to triple your impact. Democracy Now! doesn't accept advertising income, corporate underwriting or government funding because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. We rely on you for support—and we’re counting on you right now. I hope you’ll give as much as you can today. Every dollar makes a difference. Thanks so much.

U.N. Calls for End to Attacks on Civilian Targets in Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict

HeadlineNov 03, 2020

U.N. human rights chief Michelle Bachelet said Monday strikes on civilians in the ongoing Nagorno-Karabakh conflict could constitute war crimes, and called again for a halt to attacks on towns, schools and hospitals. This comes after Armenia’s leader asked Russia for military assistance, after Azerbaijan’s army pressed deeper into the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh over the weekend. The conflict has entered its sixth week, with three failed ceasefire agreements. Armenia has also called for an investigation into the presence of “foreign mercenaries” after Armenian forces said they captured two fighters from Syria. Azerbaijan’s president said Monday he is ready to end fighting if Armenia pledges to pull out of Nagorno-Karabakh. A day earlier, he warned his army is prepared to fight Armenia “to the end.”
