HOW TO STAND UP TO A DICTATOR The Fight for Our Future

by | Read by Maria Ressa, Rebecca Mozo [Intro.]

Contemporary Culture • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

In her native Philippines, the Nobel Peace Prize recipient and CNN journalist used fearless reporting and relentless community organization to publicize abuses of power by a fascist dictator. She's passionate about democracy and a free press, and you can hear it in her persuasive performance. The boots-on-the-ground immediacy in her voice will rivet listeners as they learn about the ways governments can suppress truth and spread disinformation to stay in power. Her spellbinding account of President Duterte's war against democracy will remind listeners of how fragile it can be, how easily the public can be manipulated with lies and the violent suppression of free speech. This audiobook is a moving plea for all of us to be vigilant about threats like these to democracy. T.W. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2023]
