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 DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Refugees in Greece Protest Dire Conditions as Many Remain Unsheltered After Moria Fire

HeadlineSep 15, 2020

In Greece, thousands of refugees remain without shelter one week after the burning down of the massive, overcrowded Moria encampment. Some 13,000 people were left homeless, and many still do not have access to running water or food and are unable to leave the island of Lesbos. Many are also refusing to go to a new camp set up by Greek authorities, saying they do not trust the new facility. Refugees have been holding protests over their conditions and pleading for help from other European nations. Over the weekend, police fired tear gas at the demonstrators.
