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. Please donate today in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. We can't do our work without you. 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.

New Reports Find Boeing at Fault for Fatal Crashes of Boeing 737 MAX Jets

HeadlineMar 10, 2020

Ceremonies are being held in Ethiopia and around the world today to mark one year since the crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, which killed all 157 people on board. A new House report released Friday finds that engineering errors, inadequate federal safety oversight and a “culture of concealment” were responsible for the crash, as well as Indonesia’s Lion Air crash in October 2018, which killed 189 people — both crashes on Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. Ethiopian aviation authorities also released a report this week blaming Boeing equipment and training for the crash.

In other aviation news, the trial of four people — three Russians and one Ukrainian — accused of downing Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over eastern Ukraine in 2014 opened in the Netherlands Monday. The names of the 298 victims were read in court before proceedings began.
