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.

U.N. Blames Climate Crisis for South Sudan’s Worst Flooding in 60 Years

HeadlineOct 26, 2021

In South Sudan, over 700,000 people have been affected by torrential rains, which brought the region the worst flooding it’s seen in over 60 years. A representative for the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights said climate change is to blame.

Arafat Jamal: “Climate change does not have to lead to despair, because there are solutions. Solutions include pumping, include canalization, and they include good planning. What we would like to do as an international community, and what we must do, is support the efforts of the people and the government of South Sudan.”
