Maria Ressa

HuffPost has joined with other leading news organizations around the world to stand up for journalists under attack for pursuing the truth.
Philippine officials first arrested Ressa, executive editor of Rappler, in February — among a series of attempts to stifle the site's reporting on Duterte’s war on drugs.
Long a target of President Rodrigo Duterte, Ressa was arrested Wednesday in the latest attempt to silence her and her news site, Rappler.
Journalist Maria Ressa says she won’t be intimidated by the Philippine authorities after she was arrested for libel.
