Reporters Without Borders said Friday it will launch November 27 a website called WeFightCensorship (WeFC) on which it will post content that has been censored or banned or has given rise to reprisals against its creator.
The website’s aim is to make censorship obsolete.
“It is an unprecedented initiative that will enable Reporters Without Borders to complement all of its other activities in defense of freedom of information, which include advocacy, lobbying and assistance,” said the organization.
Content submitted by journalists or netizens who have been the victims of censorship – articles, videos, sound files, photos and so on – will be considered for publication on the WeFightCensorship site.
The content selected by the WeFC editorial committee will be accompanied by a description of the context and creator. It may also be accompanied by copies of documents relating to the proceedings under which it was banned or other documents that might help the public to understand its importance.
There will be French and English-language versions of the site. Documents from all over the world will be published in their original language (including Chinese, Persian and Vietnamese) and in translation.
The site is designed to be easily duplicated and mirror versions will be created in order to thwart attempts to filter or block it. Internet users will be asked to circulate the censored content in order to give it as much visibility as possible.
The Eurasia Review team publishes news and analysis on world events with an approach that focuses on how that news affects Eurasia and Afro-Eurasia. In a nutshell, we publish the “Eurasia view” of the world.
Despite the combined Eurasia and Afro-Asia areas containing over 70% of the world’s population, news continues to be dominated by a U.S. slant, and that is where Eurasia Review - an independent news outlet based in Madrid, Spain – enters the picture by providing a different perspective on current events. Eurasia Review readers will find content that has distinct and varied points-of-view — something that we believe allows readers to then make informed decisions
The Eurasia Review approach is to seek to present all sides to an issue, with an emphasis on analysis and Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) materials.
In addition, Eurasia Review publishes content from its ever growing network of partners, which includes analysts, think tanks, academic institutions, journalists, authors and bloggers.
