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.

Children Killed at Darfur Hospital as Fighting Intensifies in Sudan’s El Fasher

HeadlineMay 13, 2024

In Sudan, Doctors Without Borders says two children were killed and others were injured overnight Sunday when a bomb fell outside a pediatric hospital in the western city of El Fasher, the capital of North Darfur. Also on Sunday, there were reports of another 27 deaths in El Fasher as the Sudanese army clashed with the RSF — Rapid Support Forces — as fears mount of possible “carnage” in the last major stronghold of the army. Some 800,000 internally displaced people have taken refuge in El Fasher, which was once thought to be relatively shielded from the war.
