This year, Reporters Without Borders Belgium is celebrating its 20th anniversary. For 20 years, reporters have been risking their lives fighting for freedom of information in modern day dictatorships such as Syria, Iran, Russia, China, Zimbabwe and North Korea.
To ‘celebrate’, advertising agency Publicis Brussels created a mashup video that shows dictators Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-Un, Recep Erdogan, Bashar Al-Assad, Robert Mugabe and others singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to Reporters Without Borders.
These dictators are some of the worst offenders against freedom of speech and information, and without them, there would be no need to fight and die for press freedom. Without them, Reporters Without Borders wouldn’t be celebrating its 20th anniversary.
