Hi there,

Our generous triple match has been extended, which means your donation to Democracy Now! today will be TRIPLED. If you give $10, we'll get $30 to support our independent journalism. Please don’t miss out on this opportunity to triple your impact. Democracy Now! is a free source of independent news for tens of millions of people around the world, but less than 1% of our global audience donates to support our critical reporting. Let’s pick up the percentage! We rely on you for support—not the oil, gas, coal and nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis or the weapons manufacturers when we cover war. I hope you’ll give as much as you can today. Every dollar makes a difference. Thanks so much.
-Amy Goodman

At Least 59 Migrants Dead in 2023’s Deadliest Shipwreck Off Greek Coast

HeadlineJun 14, 2023

At least 59 migrants drowned earlier today after their boat capsized off the Greek coast. Over 100 people were rescued, though it’s not clear how many passengers were on the Italy-bound vessel before it sank. It’s the deadliest shipwreck off the Greek coast this year.

In related news, the International Organization for Migration says it recorded nearly 3,800 deaths in 2022 along land and sea routes in the Middle East and North Africa region, an 11% jump from the previous year.
