ABOUT US

Stop Media Ban is an association of journalists and media workers whose rights to free expression have been threatened.

Independent journalists united to create a movement to stop media repressions in Moldova and beyond. Our goal is to tell stories when media censorship has put democracy and human rights under threat.
