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.

Tens of Thousands Evacuate Australia’s Worst Floods in Over a Decade

HeadlineMar 01, 2022

In Australia, torrential rains and record flooding have inundated the eastern states of Queensland and New South Wales, killing at least eight people and forcing tens of thousands to evacuate. Residents could be seen taking refuge on rooftops as the fast-rising waters submerged their homes. This is the premier of New South Wales.

Premier Dominic Perrottet: “Simply because your community has not flooded in the past does not mean that it will not flood over the course of this week. What we are seeing today is unprecedented, and the advice that we have received is that we would expect things to get worse over this period of time.”
