We are living through a revolutionary moment in the history of human liberty. A rapid global spread of digital and social media allows individuals all over the world to fight for basic human rights. Today’s heroes are using technology to:
- Expose the lies of tyrants.
- Break dictatorial information monopolies.
- Draw attention to the evils of their oppressors.
- Defend the dignity of all people.
Human Liberty 2.0 showcases true stories of ordinary people using digital media to advance universal rights around the world. For example…
