Hi there,

This week Democracy Now! is bringing you live, on-the-ground coverage of the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, where you’ll hear the voices and analysis you won’t get anywhere else. In August, we’ll travel to Chicago for the Democratic National Convention. Democracy Now! doesn’t accept corporate advertising or sponsorship revenue, and we don’t take money from any government. That means we’re relying on you. Can you donate $15 to Democracy Now! today to support our RNC and DNC coverage—and so much more? Right now, a generous donor will TRIPLE your gift, which means your $15 donation is worth $45. Please do your part to help us air in-depth, substantive coverage of the conventions and the issues that matter most during the 2024 election cycle. Thank you so much—and remember, every dollar makes a difference.

Floods in India and Nepal Kill 200 People and Displace Millions

HeadlineJul 20, 2020

Heavy floods and landslides from monsoon rains have displaced 4 million people in India’s northeastern state of Assam and in Nepal, with close to 200 reported deaths and dozens of people missing. This is a resident of Assam.

Mukul Das: “This flooding comes every year. This year, it’s the biggest one, so the roads have been submerged. How will people live? Many people are living on boats. Our houses have also been submerged.”

The devastating floods are also destroying wildlife and their habitats. As much as 95% of the Kaziranga National Park may be underwater, and over 100 animals, including eight rare rhinos, have died in the floods.
