Kholoud Helmi, activist who challenges Syrian regime with journalism
Media4Change introduces you to Kholoud Helmi. She is a Syrian journalist who, along with a group of citizen journalists and activists, created Enab Baladi, an underground newspaper, in 2011. This is the only publication inside Syria which reports al-Ásad abuses and crimes.
Helmi, winner of the Anna Politkovskaya Award, came to Vilnius to speak about Enab Baladi and the important role of women in preserving Syria’s local level structure, to oppose the regime and face the war. ‘When governments fall, communities will not’, she said.
