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.

182 More Unmarked Graves Found at First Nations Residential Schools in Canada

HeadlineJul 01, 2021

In Canada, another 182 unmarked graves have been found at a former boarding school for First Nations children in British Columbia. It is the third major discovery in recent weeks of graves at residential schools where Indigenous children were forcibly sent to rid them of their Native cultures and languages. Meanwhile, Pope Francis has finally agreed to meet with Indigenous survivors of Catholic-run residential schools in Canada. The pope has faced widespread criticism for refusing to apologize for the church’s role in what Canada’s National Truth and Reconciliation Commission described as “cultural genocide.”
