Hi there,

Our generous Giving Tuesday triple match has been extended, which means your donation to Democracy Now! today will go 3x as far. 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.

Iranian President Calls on U.S. to Recommit to Nuclear Deal, Says “Americanization” of World Failed

HeadlineSep 20, 2023

One day after a high-profile Iran-U.S. prisoner swap, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi told the U.N. General Assembly the U.S. “project to 'Americanize' the world has failed” as he hailed a new world order. He also called on the U.S. to revive the Iran nuclear deal it exited under President Trump.

President Ebrahim Raisi: “America should demonstrate its goodwill and genuine willingness to fulfill its commitments and conclude the path.”

Outside the U.N. headquarters, protesters gathered to condemn Iran’s crackdown on dissent and protests. This week marked one year since the start of Iran’s nationwide uprising following the death of Mahsa Amini while in the custody of Iran’s morality police.
