Hi there,

Democracy Now is committed to bringing you the stories and perspectives you won't hear anywhere else, from the peace activists demanding an end to war to Indigenous leaders fighting to stop fossil fuel extraction and save the planet. Our independent reporting is only possible because we’re funded by you—not by the weapons manufacturers when we cover war or gun violence, not by the oil, gas, coal, or nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis. Can you donate $10 today to keep us going strong? Every dollar makes a difference. Right now a generous donor will TRIPLE your donation, making it three times as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

100+ Killed, Thousands Displaced in Kenya from Massive Flooding

HeadlineMay 04, 2020

In Kenya, over 1,800 families have lost their homes in recent days as heavy rains trigger massive flooding in western Kenya. Rains have been pounding the region for weeks, killing over 100 people in floods and landslides. This is a displaced resident.

Vincent Ochieng: “It has been flooding for three days now. I think the government is not even aware, but now we are telling them. We are asking if there are any plans to assist us. Only two boats are here for evacuating people.”
