At least 30 international organizations, including 22 media companies, have banded together to share “The Forbidden Stories of Rappler,” a series of 5 videos about CEO Maria Ressa and the investigations done by Rappler, which drew the ire of President Rodrigo Duterte.
Watch “The Forbidden Stories” below. We will update this page every time a new video in the series is published:
Episode 1: The War
Episode 2: The President
Episode 3: The Money
Episode 4: The Truth
Episode 5: The Virus
“I think that journalists should come together. The most effective way to deal with both attacks on social media and the kind of draconian policies that are coming now to prevent journalists from doing their jobs is to fight it together,” said Ressa, who was recently nominated for the Nobel Prize.
The video series, produced with the support of the Pulitzer Center, aims to give a worldwide echo to the investigations that Philippine authorities want to silence.
With the hashtag #AmplifyRappler, the massive global republishing or sharing of these videos would send a powerful message to Duterte that Rappler and Ressa are not alone.
Ressa has been released on bail 10 times in two years, while Rappler journalists, banned from covering any presidential events, continue to face harassment.
Starting February 22, the 5 videos will be launched every day at 8 pm Philippine time (2 pm CET / 8 am EST). – Rappler.com
