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.
-Amy Goodman

Nagorno-Karabakh’s Gov’t to Self-Dissolve by Jan. 1 as 50,000 People Flee

HeadlineSep 28, 2023

The president of the self-declared Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh says the government of the contested region will dissolve itself by January 1. The announcement comes just days after Azerbaijan carried out a military blitz to seize the territory, which is mostly made up of ethnic Armenians. Over 50,000 people in Nagorno-Karabakh have fled to Armenia in recent days — that’s more than half of the region’s population. On Wednesday, Azerbaijan arrested the former head of the Nagorno-Karabakh government as he was trying to cross into Armenia.
