If you’d rather a dictatorship than a democracy, this is not the cause for you. But if you think that corrupt or selfish governments lead to unhappy lives for citizens, you’ve come to the right place. That’s because strong, honest journalism is essential for a functional democracy. If we don’t know what’s happening, how can we take action? It’s also for this reason that journalists are persecuted around the world. Whether subtly through underfunding, legal red tape and political harassment, or blatantly through violence, journalism is under unprecedented threat
