It is very good that the independent media can have the noble  opportunity and chance to portray the lives of people in other parts of the world, without being reprimanded by their home governments because of another persons view points or opinion do not correspond with the law of the land. We must encourage freedom of assembly and speech to make this world a place for everybody
