UNFree Media website gives voice to silenced journalists

UNFree Media helps jailed, banned and silenced journalists, writers, bloggers and documentary-makers fight censorship by helping them transform themselves into foreign correspondents. It is a "bottom-up service" that showcases the journalism, blogs, songs, poems and videos of silenced dissidents. The site aims to highlight stories told by local journalists facing repression.

At a time when the world's major news organisations are shutting down foreign bureaus, local independent journalists can tell well-informed, invaluable stories. The site fills a critical communications gap as brutal crackdowns on independent media increase worldwide.
