The Dissidents.org project is an initiative of the Fundación para el Progreso (Chile), in which different testimonies of brave citizens around the world who rose up against oppression around the world are registered. In this site, Sascha Hannig and Rafael Rincón interview Joshua Wong (Hong Kong), Rosa María Payá (Cuba) and Rayma Suprani (Venezuela). The founders of this initiative state “Social Media and activism have become threats for authoritarian regimes all around the world. It is harder to hide Human Rights abuses, someone’s voice can cross the ocean and reach millions through Twitter. An authoritarian regime can grow overnight, degenerate from a democracy, or fall as quickly. Who are the dissidents who face this reality in the 21st century? We look forward to interviewing some of them”.
