ForbiddenStories

On every continent, journalists have faced danger and difficulty investigating environmental issues. Since 2009, at least 13 journalists have been killed after working on environment-related stories, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists. CPJ is still investigating 16 additional deaths, so there may be as many as 29 cases.

For the first time, 40 journalists from 15 countries organized by Forbidden Stories were able to go in to the field, track supply chains and use open source tools to look into mines in India, Tanzania and Guatemala where questionable practices had previously been covered up.

The results of this eight-month-long collaborative investigation will be published the week of June 17 in 30 media organizations around the world to keep those stories alive.
