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.

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.
