Free press, free democracy

 
It has happened before, and it will happen again. 

In fact, it's happening right now. 

Journalists around the world are championing the fight for free speech and fighting against authoritarian governments. And they're being persecuted for it. 

Earlier this week, Al Jazeera highlighted the fight of journalists in Mozambique's Cabo Delgado region who have faced random arrests, assaults, and torture at the hands of those who wish to silence them. 

On the other side of the world, in Myanmar, the military junta is working to silence independent media. The government revoked the licenses of five separate media outlets, according to a Human Rights Watch report Tuesday, March 9.

Our world is fragile. It's our job, the journalists' job, to hold the powerful to account. 

At Orato World Media, we believe a free press has the power to prompt change and, at the same time, reduces the differences that divide us. 

We value you, our network of freelance journalists, as agents of truth. That's why we want to engage and compensate you to write verifiable, true first-person eyewitness accounts of current events.
