Open letter to RT and Sputnik France

Dear RT and Sputnik France teams,

Freedom of expression is CrowdBunker's DNA.

It was with great emotion that we learned of the indiscriminate censorship of your news agencies. Whether or not we agree with your editorial line or the ideology of your backers, we cannot bear to see freedom of expression muzzled in this way.

Censorship is not and should never become the norm in a society where freedom is a fundamental right.

CrowdBunker is a free-expression platform where you can publish videos, images and text without the possibility of censorship.

The energy of our entire team is devoted to ensuring that the most diverse opinions can be expressed, as long as they are strictly legal.

With no advertising or capital funding, we welcome thousands of independent media outlets, scientists, unaffiliated journalists, free-spirited artists, alarmists, poets, seasoned and novice videographers, and creators of all stripes, free of charge... but first and foremost... citizens free to inform themselves and others.

Our freedom of opinion is the most precious thing in a true democracy.

For citizens of a true democracy to be able to form their own opinions, they must have access to information that is as complete and impartial as possible. Without this, what we believe to be a free and informed opinion is in fact the fruit of a dogma shaped by advertising and propaganda campaigns designed to serve the interests of the campaign's backers.

CrowdBunker in numbers

  • ±2M unique visitors per month
  • +85000 registered users
  • +130000 publications and comments
  • +40000 videos
  • Channel with the most subscribers: The Independent Scientific Council, with 13.4k subscribers
  • +10k of monthly operating costs entirely financed by free donations from those who have the greatest interest in our existence: our users.

As far as you are concerned RT and Sputnik France, we don't care if you are funded by a state or not - argument that seems to have been used to censor you under the heading of censorship taken against the interests of the Russian state - we at CrowdBunker believe that our most fundamental right is to think freely and that as a news agency, your contribution to a diversity of viewpoints is vital to our future.

We therefore make the deliberate choice of trusting our users' intelligence and capacity for discernment, rather than seeking to infantilize them by assuming that they are not capable of forming their own opinion when faced with this or that information.

Our tools are different, our struggle is the same

CrowdBunker is truly a free expression platform in all its forms and trends. It's now possible to publish video, text, image and even live video content, just like Twitch, YouTube and others.

Thanks to our decentralized, redundant and proven technical infrastructure, we are armed to face the most difficult attacks, especially DDOS.

We will never censor content because we don't "like" it, or because it doesn't correspond to the "official truth" or the "consensus".

As long as a user registers in compliance with the laws in force and with our summaries terms and conditions of useWe're open to receiving it on our platform in order to protect our freedom of expression, opinion and information.

Join us in the digital resistance

Dear teams of RT France, dear teams of Sputnik France, if you agree and want to join us to protect your freedom to inform us, we will be happy and honored to welcome you on

You'll then be free to host your content and we will commit ourselves to fight indefinitely at your side so that you retain your unconditional freedom to inform us.

Thanking you in advance for your response to our invitation.

We look forward to welcoming you!


CrowdBunker, genesis of a resistance to censorship

October 2020 : Censorship rages on.

YouTube has been deleting Resistance channels with tens or even hundreds of thousands of subscribers.

Facebook engages in insidious shadow ban censorship, manipulating its algorithms to "hide" content deemed undesirable.

Odysee/LBRY is starting to look like a credible alternative to YouTube, but it's having trouble convincing the masses because of its shortcomings...

The war of disinformation is in full swing and the criminals in power are gaining ground with their dishonest methods of neutralizing any form of contradiction.

The near-monopoly of the information giants and the complicity of the media enable criminals to perpetrate their crimes with the blessing of the near-majority of citizens.

The motive for the crime is perfect.

"A dangerous virus is putting our societies at risk.
We, as politicians, are here to protect you. That is our duty. And we have found the solution to save you. A very innovative and effective vaccine is being finalized as we speak, to be rushed to market for the good of the people of the world. We are doing our best to have enough for the whole world, in a fair way and as soon as possible. Trust us to save you and above all, don't listen to those dangerous conspiracy theorists who tell you there is no epidemic. They are crazy. They also believe the earth is flat and the moon is hollow."

The narrative is well established.

November 2020 : Every day brings us closer to the point of no return

The scourge of misinformation is rampant, and public opinion is slowly and definitively being subjected to a devious narrative built around fear and guilt.

Any contradictory statement, even if it is rational and supported by scientific evidence and facts, is immediately discredited and its bearer pilloried.

On November 11, 2020, Hold-Up is released. On November 12, 2020, Hold-Up is censored.

The war of misinformation is total. Resistance fighters are disarmed, disillusioned and penniless. Only the rage of despair keeps them going. With no YouTube channel, no Facebook page, no Twitter account, no Vimeo, no Tipee for the main information warriors, the battle seems futile and lost in advance.

Humanity is on the brink of a madness with no way back. And nothing and no one seems able to stop it.

November 17, 2020: The domain name is registered

The morale of the troops is more than shaken by the darkness of disinformation propagated without any resistance.

The fight for fair, loyal and transparent information is becoming titanic.

The outpouring of slanderous, defamatory and propagandistic media and the brutal censorship of social networks are beginning to reveal the true nature of this system of control: a filth that gives the illusion of freedom, but whose sole purpose is to manipulate public opinion, and certainly not to inform individuals who are free to form their own opinions.

Understanding the vital need to safeguard the freedom of expression and opinion of all muzzled Resistance fighters as quickly as possible, a daring young computer engineer launches a video platform designed to synchronize videos from YouTube channels, before theblind censorship to make them "jump" for good.

The idea was born: CrowdBunker would be "the bunker for crowds".

A bunker for whistle-blowers, independent media, free-thinkers and citizens in search of the truth.

CrowdBunker would be the breeding ground in which freedom of expression could flourish, so that information could regain the upper hand over propaganda.

Almost a year later, CrowdBunker has become THE platform of free speech par excellence.

And with each passing day, new improvements and features are added to make CrowdBunker a platform that censors will have to cope with.

Some figures:

CrowdBunker today is:

Over one million unique visitors per month,
Over 49,000 user accounts,
Nearly 19,000 videos protected from censorship

Fun facts

Welcome to the Resistance!

Your freedom of expression is our best weapon of massive reinformation. ✊🕊️❤️🙏
