Hi there,

Democracy Now is committed to bringing you the stories and perspectives you won't hear anywhere else, from the peace activists demanding an end to war to Indigenous leaders fighting to stop fossil fuel extraction and save the planet. Our independent reporting is only possible because we’re funded by you—not by the weapons manufacturers when we cover war or gun violence, not by the oil, gas, coal, or nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis. Can you donate right now and help us unlock a special $25,000 gift? If 200 people donate to Democracy Now! today, a generous donor will contribute $25,000 in support of our independent journalism. Every donation counts, so please do your part. Thank you!

Tennis Star Novak Djokovic Released from Immigration Detention as Australian Visa Reinstated

HeadlineJan 10, 2022

An Australian judge reinstated Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic’s visa and released him from immigration detention amid the ongoing controversy over whether Djokovic’s COVID vaccine exemption was legitimate. Australian government authorities say they could still intervene to revoke the visa and prevent the defending champion from taking part in the Australian Open, set to start next week. Djokovic’s case has intensified international scrutiny over the treatment of immigrants and refugees in Australia. Later in the broadcast, we’ll look at the people he leaves behind in the facility where he was detained.
