Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that’s 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent journalism. Since our first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take corporate or government 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 in to Democracy Now! gave just $4, we could cover our operating expenses for the entire year. Really, that’s all it would take. 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.

13,000 Asylum Seekers Left Homeless in Greece After Fires Engulfed Refugee Camp

HeadlineSep 11, 2020

In Greece, officials are sending at least three ships to aid some 13,000 people who have been left homeless after a blaze completely incinerated the Moria refugee camp in the isles of Lesbos earlier this week. A series of small fires were reportedly lit by refugee youth as a form of protest after the only ATM machine available on site — which the entire refugee camp was dependent on for money — was blocked amid COVID-19 restrictions, leaving them unable to buy food and hygienic supplies.
