“First they came for the journalists, we do not know what happened after that.”

Maria Ressa was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2021 for her courageous fight for freedom of expression in her home country of the Philippines. As a journalist, she has been a key critic of the Philippine government and its president, Rodrigo Duterte. Ressa and her news website Rappler have also put the spotlight on Facebook and other social media. They believe that the misuse and deregulation of these channels are a threat to democracy in several countries. The Philippine authorities have accused Ressa of tax evasion and cyber libel, something that she and her supporters consider a smear campaign.
