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

Shireen Abu Akleh’s Family Files Complaint Against Israel at International Criminal Court

HeadlineSep 23, 2022

The family of slain Palestinian American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh has filed a complaint against Israel at the International Criminal Court. Abu Akleh was shot in the head on May 11 while covering an Israeli raid on the Jenin refugee camp in the occupied West Bank. Her family says she was deliberately targeted and killed by Israeli forces. Shireen’s brother, Anton Abu Akleh, spoke with Al Jazeera from The Hague.

Anton Abu Akleh: “This is the least we can do for Shireen. We have to pursue justice for her in The Hague, in the ICC, in other courts. Whatever we have to do, we will do it to ensure accountability for Shireen for her killing. … Any person shooting at the press is intentionally trying to kill and assassinate someone in the field doing their job.”
