Al Jazeera Documentary "The Night Won't End" Investigates Civilian Deaths in Gaza & U.S. Complicity

Support our work: https://democracynow.org/donate/sm-desc-yt "The Night Won’t End," a new documentary from Al Jazeera English, takes an in-depth look at attacks on civilians by the Israeli military in Gaza and the United States’ role in the war. The film follows three Palestinian families as they recount the horrific experiences they have endured under relentless Israeli assault, including the family of 6-year-old Hind Rajab, the young Palestinian girl who made headlines when it emerged in January that she had been trapped in a car with family members killed by Israeli ground troops, and the Salem family, who first lost dozens of family members in an Israeli airstrike and then additional family members who were executed by Israeli soldiers. We play clips from the documentary and speak to journalists Kavitha Chekuru and Sharif Abdel Kouddous, the director and correspondent on "The Night Won’t End," respectively. We also discuss the plight of journalists in Gaza and U.S. complicity in Israel’s war. “There’s no question that U.S. weapons have killed civilians in Gaza,” says Kouddous. “This violates both international humanitarian law and domestic law.” Transcript: https://www.democracynow.org/2024/6/21/the_night_wont_end Democracy Now! is an independent global news hour that airs on over 1,500 TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.

First Illinois Latina Rep. Praises Biden's New Immigration Executive Order But Slams Border Shutdown

Support our work: https://democracynow.org/donate/sm-desc-yt President Joe Biden's latest executive order on immigration gives legal protections to about half a million undocumented immigrants who are married to American citizens, preventing their deportation and providing a streamlined pathway to citizenship for them and their children. The announcement is being welcomed by immigrant rights groups, but comes just weeks after Biden signed another order giving himself far-reaching power to shut down the U.S. border with Mexico to limit asylum requests. The two executive orders "could not be more different from each other," says Congressmember Delia Ramirez of Illinois. She attended Tuesday's White House ceremony with her husband Boris Hernandez, who came to the U.S. as a teenager and would qualify for protections under the new rule, and says Biden must offer an alternative to hard-line Republican policies. "Be the administration that shows the stark difference between Donald Trump and Joe Biden as it pertains to immigration. Tuesday was a good step in that direction. What he did two-and-a-half weeks ago was not," says Ramirez. Democracy Now! is an independent global news hour that airs on over 1,500 TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.

Meet Nadia Milleron: Her Daughter Was Killed in 2019 Boeing Crash, Now She's Running for Congress

Support our work: https://democracynow.org/donate/sm-desc-yt Boeing CEO David Calhoun appeared before a Senate committee on Tuesday to face questions about the aerospace giant's safety record, just hours after the release of a damning report on Boeing's business practices. Released by the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, the report found that the company lost track of hundreds of substandard aircraft parts, eliminated quality inspectors and put manufacturing workers in charge of signing off on their own work. We speak with Nadia Milleron, an aviation safety advocate, whose daughter Samya Stumo was killed on Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 in 2019 when a Boeing 737 MAX 8 jet crashed due to the plane's malfunctioning software that put the plane into a nosedive. She attended Tuesday's hearing and is also running for Congress in Massachusetts. "Why is Dave Calhoun paid $32 million? He's paid that money to cut costs. That's what he's good at. He's not good at production. He's not an engineer. He's paid to strip-mine the company," says Milleron, who signed a letter along with other families of Boeing crash victims calling on the Justice Department to consider criminal prosecutions against company leadership. "They need to clean house." Democracy Now! is an independent global news hour that airs on over 1,500 TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.
