Hi there,

Can you donate $10 per month to support Democracy Now!’s independent journalism all year long? Since our very first broadcast in 1996, we’ve refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. When Democracy Now! covers war and peace or the climate crisis, we’re not brought to you by the weapons manufacturers or the oil, gas, coal or nuclear companies. When we cover healthcare, we’re not brought to you by the insurance industry or Big Pharma. Our journalism is powered by YOU. But that means we can’t do our work without you.Right now, a generous donor will DOUBLE your gift, which means your $10 donation this month will be worth $20 to Democracy Now! Please do your part today. Every dollar counts. Thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Amnesty Report Finds Israel Guilty of “The Crime of Apartheid Against Palestinians”

HeadlineFeb 01, 2022

Amnesty International has published a new report accusing Israel of carrying out “the crime of apartheid against Palestinians.” Amnesty’s Secretary General Agnès Callamard told reporters in occupied East Jerusalem today that Israel’s treatment of Palestinians constitutes a cruel system of domination and a crime against humanity.

Agnès Callamard: “We are here today to call on the international community to take resolute action against the crime [against] humanity being perpetrated in order to maintain the system of apartheid.”

Israeli officials had demanded Amnesty International not release the report, calling its findings “false, biased and antisemitic.”
