Hi there,

This week Democracy Now! is bringing you live, on-the-ground coverage of the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, where you’ll hear the voices and analysis you won’t get anywhere else. In August, we’ll travel to Chicago for the Democratic National Convention. Democracy Now! doesn’t accept corporate advertising or sponsorship revenue, and we don’t take money from any government. That means we’re relying on you. Can you donate $15 to Democracy Now! to support our RNC and DNC coverage—and so much more? Right now, a generous donor will DOUBLE your gift, which means your $15 donation is worth $30 today. Please do your part to help us air in-depth, substantive coverage of the conventions and the issues that matter most during the 2024 election cycle. Thank you so much—and remember, every dollar makes a difference.

U.S. Advises Citizens to Leave Ethiopia as Specter of All-Out War Increases

HeadlineNov 08, 2021

The US State Department has told all American citizens in Ethiopia they should leave “as soon as possible,” as the prospect of wide-scale conflict mounts. The embassies of the U.S. and other countries evacuated all nonessential personnel. This came days after Ethiopia’s government declared a state of emergency, after Tigrayan rebels backed by Oromo fighters marched toward Addis Ababa, seizing two strategic towns less than 250 miles from the Ethiopian capital. On Sunday, Ethiopian authorities organized pro-government rallies attended by tens of thousands of people who pledged to defend Addis Ababa from the rebels.
