Hi there,

If you think Democracy Now!’s reporting is a critical line of defense against war, climate catastrophe and fascism, please make your donation of $10 or more right now. Today a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, which means it’ll go twice as far to support our independent journalism. When Democracy Now! covers war or gun violence, we’re not brought to you by the weapons manufacturers. When we cover the climate emergency, our reporting isn’t sponsored by the oil, gas, coal or nuclear companies. Democracy Now! is funded by you, and that’s why we’re counting on your donation to keep us going. Please give today. Every dollar makes a difference—in fact, gets doubled! Thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Bangladesh Still Reeling from Massive Floods Which Submerged One-Third of Country

HeadlineAug 25, 2020

In Bangladesh, at least 160 people have been killed, and millions forced to flee their homes, as residents grapple with ongoing flooding after weeks of torrential rains. At least one-third of the country has been submerged by floods. This comes as the country’s COVID-19 cases near 300,000 and local officials warn of the joint devastating impact of the pandemic and the floods. This is a resident affected by the floods.

Mohammad Jalil: “We are suffering a lot from the floods that have been going on for two months. We can’t move. We can’t go anywhere to buy food. There is no school for the children.”
