Open letter to RT and Sputnik France
Dear RT and Sputnik France teams,
Freedom of expression is the DNA of CrowdBunker.
It is with great emotion that we learned of the blind censorship that had hit your news agencies. It does not matter whether we agree or not with your editorial line or whether we adhere or not to the ideology of your financiers, it is unbearable for us 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 any possibility of censorship.
The energy of our entire team is dedicated to ensuring that the most diverse opinions can be expressed, as long as they are in accordance with strict legality.
Without any advertising or capital funding, we welcome thousands of independent media, scientists, unaffiliated journalists, free-spirited artists, alarmists, poets, video artists, seasoned and novice, and creators of all kinds... but above all citizens free to inform themselves and to inform.
Our freedom of opinion is the most precious thing in a true democracy.
In order for citizens of a true democracy to form an opinion, 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 result of a dogma shaped by advertising and propaganda campaigns designed to serve the interests of the financiers of these campaigns.

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 the diversity of views is crucial to our future.
We therefore make the deliberate choice of trusting our users' intelligence and capacity for discernment, rather than trying to infantilize them by believing that they are not capable of forming their own opinion when faced with such and such information.
Our tools are different, our struggle is the same
CrowdBunker is truly a free expression platform in all its forms and trends. It is now possible to publish video, text, image and even live video content like Twitch, YouTube, etc.
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 as well as our summaries terms and conditions of useIn order to protect our freedom of expression, opinion and information, we are open to receive it on our platform.
