Media continues to tell the 'Forbidden Stories'

The Namibian and 14 media organisations around the world have partnered with Forbidden Stories - a non-profit project founded by the Freedom Voices Network investigative newsroom - to launch Green Blood: a series of stories which detail the deliberate silencing of journalists in various parts of the world.

The series will include the stories of journalists from India, Guatemala and Tanzania, whose lives were endangered while in the line of duty.

Since 2009, at least 13 journalists have been killed globally after working on environment-related stories, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ). There may be as many as 29 cases. The CPJ is still investigating 16 additional deaths.

Check out The Namibian’s social media pages (@TheNamibian) to read the first story, which narrates how at least a dozen reporters in Tanzania who were trying to investigate violence, environmental damage and other wrongdoing connected to a gold mine in the north of the country, have been censored or threatened.
