About the Campaign

Disinformation, propaganda, and “Fake News” have always existed. But why should we worry about that at all?
What makes it different today is its rapid dissemination and global reach. The spread of false information is being deliberately weaponised by the enemies of freedom. It’s being used to degrade public trust in democratic and state institutions, the media and to intensify social division, resentment and fear.

How can we detect which claims are (deliberately) false? In what ways can we counter the global phenomenon of disinformation? What is the state of media freedom around the world and how can we strengthen it? The Friedrich-Naumann-Stiftung für die Freiheit's campaign #FreedomFightsFake empowers citizens around the globe to think critically and “pre-bunk” disinformation!
Together we work against disinformation!
