Another great resource

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Mar 19, 2003

If you take an interest in questions of religious freedom-- and you should-- there's a very promising new service available.

The Forum 18 News Service-- named after Article 18 of the UN Declaration of Human Rights-- has announced a new program "to report on threats and actions against the religious freedom of all people, regardless of their religious affiliation, in an objective, truthful and timely manner."

It gets better: The reporters heading up this project-- Felix Corley, Geraldine Fagan, Igor Rotar-- are among the best in the business, having worked on similar stories for the Keston News Service (which is now restricting its operations). CWN has relied heavily on these reporters in the past; they're as good as you'll find anywhere.

Forum 18 will offer regular reports by email, free of charge, to anyone interested. To learn more, or simply to subscribe, visit their web site: http://www.forum18.org/Subscribe.php.
