Maria Ressa of Rappler on how to fight back.
Philippine authorities have arrested journalist Maria Ressa 10 times in the past two years. They’ve been threatening for years to shut down the media organization she runs, Rappler. Yet, even as the government in Manila becomes more repressive, Ressa has managed to produce some of the most probing and engaging journalism coming out of the Philippines. Last year, she received a Nobel Peace Prize for her work.
On the latest episode of Global Reboot, Foreign Policy’s editor in chief, Ravi Agrawal, sits down with Ressa to discuss the threat to free expression around the world and the ways people can fight back.
This interview was also featured in an FP Live. You can check out the conversation here.
