Les troupes gouvernementales en état d'alerte

Le gouvernement libérien a renforcé la sécurité dans le comté de Gbarpolu suite aux informations faisant état de mouvements des troupes rebelles là-bas, ont rapporté les organes de presse en citant le ministre de la défense, Daniel Chea en fin de semaine. M. Chea, qui a affirmé que les troupes gouvernementales avaient été placées en état d'alerte à Gbarpolu, a réfuté une revendication du groupe rebelle 'Libériens unis pour la Réconciliation et la Démocratie'(LURD) que les combats se sont étendus du comté de Lofa au nord, à Bomi.
Il y a peu d'informations sur les combats entre les forces gouvernementales et les dissidents, mais les agences humanitaires estiment que 40,000 personnes ont fui le nord du comté de Lofa depuis avril.

Help us be the transformation we’d like to see in the news industry

The current journalistic model is broken: Audiences are demanding that the hierarchical, elite-led system of news-gathering and presentation be dismantled in favour of a more inclusive and holistic model based on more equitable access to information and more nuanced and diverse narratives.

The business model is also broken, with many media going bankrupt during the pandemic – despite their information being more valuable than ever – because of a dependence on advertisers. 

Finally, exploitative and extractive practices have long been commonplace in media and other businesses.

We think there is a better way. We want to build something different.

Our new five-year strategy outlines how we will do so. It is an ambitious vision to become a transformative newsroom – and one that we need your support to achieve.
