Don't let the truth be torn apart!

Stand up for media freedom!
1'00" 16 June 2018 Universidade Lusófona Lisbon, Portugal
This video was made by film students at the Universidade Lusófona in Lisbon, Portugal. Without freedom of the press, we are all blind and deaf. The press is our watchdog over the actions of governments, politicians, international organizations, corporations, and other establishments. Journalists have the right to work freely, without a shadow looking over their shoulder and tearing through their words. Censorship is silence, and with silence comes oblivion.

We want to hear from you! - sens us your videos
