MENA Meetups

Independent Media in Lebanon After the Blast

  • Who: Azza El Masri, Meedan
  • Date: Friday, November 20th
  • Time: 6:00pm Central Africa Time (UTC+2) / 5:00pm CET (UTC+1)
  • Language: English & Arabic

On August 4, 2700 tons of ammonium nitrate stored in Beirut's port ripped through half of the capital, taking 200 lives, injuring thousands and rendering 300,000 homeless. The impact of the blast was also felt by independent media workers, who'd had -- over the years -- taken up headquarters in the neighborhoods that had been hit the most. Megaphone is one such example.

This MENA Community Knowledge session (MENA CKS) will focus on:

  • The impact of the martial law on the security and freedom of independent journos after the blast
  • How the blast affected the business model of independent media outlets and the role of emergency funding for media
  • What kind of regional cooperation is needed in terms of archiving and journalistic collaboration and training
  • The impact of trauma on independent journalists

Azza El Masri is Meedan's NAWA Program Coordinator and a Lebanese investigative journalist. She also conducts research on political misinformation online.

The MENA CKS sessions are brought to you with love and care by Rima & Wafaa.
