The team introduced the project by honoring just a few of the people who have worked so courageously for free speech. Those include:

Palestinian-Syrian blogger Bassel Khartail Safadi [7] disappeared in Syria's prisons several years ago and was reported dead just a few months ago.

“All of these people were working to tell stories, defend human rights, and hold power to account,” Global Voices Advocacy Director Ellery Biddle told us.
