THE CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN TAKEN DOWN

We find it ironic that an initiative on freedom of information has been removed so quickly. We have officially received information that the campaign has been shut down because it violates Google Map’s policies. Important voices have been silenced in the places where they are needed the most.

BILLBOARDS BEYOND BORDERS

Billboards Beyond Borders is an initiative for journalists and others whose voices have been silenced by censorship. People whose opinions led to censorship, punishment and in some cases even death. To highlight these people’s right to freedom of information and expression, and let their voices be heard, we turned to the most powerful tool for spreading information – the internet. By altering billboards in Google Street View we gained access to locations where people could never say certain things in real life without facing consequences, far beyond both borders and censorship.

The messages on the billboards are only some of the statements that have led to censorship and punishment.
There are thousands more, and the censorship that limits the freedom of speech is only getting stricter.
