Non cryfreedom.net but supported articles and topics

EDITORIAL
This page is meant to support a number of colleage-journalists worldwide whose work since Covid-19 hasn't become easier.
That is why I choose to add a supporting editorial page with links to their articles published in a diversity of (online) newspapers and magazines and more than worth your time and reading. I introduce each article with its header and headlines.

Ps. When I quote I use < =open and > =close because the wizkid I worked with cannot help me out here anymore. I apologize for the inconvenience.
