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.

Ethiopian State TV: Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Has Gone to Battlefront in Escalating Conflict

HeadlineNov 24, 2021

In international news, Ethiopian prime minister Abiy Ahmed has gone to the frontlines of battle, according to Ethiopian state media. Government operations have been handed over to the Deputy Prime Minister. Abiy challenged Tigrayan forces to meet him on the battlefield as they threaten to march on the capital Addis Ababa. The year-long conflict has claimed thousands of lives, displaced millions, and has led to widespread violations of human rights from all involved parties, according to the U.N. — some of which could amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity.
