Ressa seen as a spokesperson for the need to defend freedom of expression

Maria Ressa will be the highlight of the Freedom of Expression Conference World Expression Forum (WEXFO) in Lillehammer this May.

The first of what will be an annual event, Ressa is seen as an inspiring spokeswoman for the freedom of expression.

Kristenn Einarsson, CEO of WEFXO, said, in a press release, that “Maria Ressa is an impressive and inspiring spokesperson for the need to promote and defend freedom of expression” and looked forward to welcoming her to Lillehammer.

Ressa, who runs the news service Rappler, has been a vocal critic of outgoing Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte.

She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize along with Russian journalist and editor Dmitry Muratov. He is seen as one of the few independent and critical voices left in Russia today under President Vladimir Putin.

  1. The Norwegian Peace Committee turned their backs on investigative journalist and Western/U.S. corruption and war crimes whistleblower Julian Assange, while awarding their protecting prize only to the Russian and Philippine equivalents … making themselves accessories to what is going to happen to Assange.
    And this sweetheart – Ressa – even publicly turned on Assange, herself.

    With its 2021 “peace” prizes, the Nobel Peace Committee has finally, conclusively proven itself to be only a propaganda front for our Western political establishment – we’re in the international minority, now, to judge by the 130-2-40 vote on anti-Nazi UN General Assembly Resolution 169 last month – thus actually undermining our international credibility and respect, let alone international peace.
