Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate 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 into Democracy Now! signed up for a monthly donation of just $10, we could cover our operating costs for the entire year. Please do your part today. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your first monthly gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to start a new monthly donation, please don’t delay. We’re counting on your support. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.

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.”
