#GIJC19 Nears Sell-Out,
Ressa to Keynote
<https://gijn.us5.list-manage.com/track/click?u=0212d7db984672e4fe5ac3daf&id=16acffdc69&e=b5b6a28b13>Faced
with huge demand for this year's Global Investigative Journalism Conference
<https://gijn.us5.list-manage.com/track/click?u=0212d7db984672e4fe5ac3daf&id=739783b9e1&e=b5b6a28b13>,
GIJN and its partners have suspended ticket sales to ensure we have enough
capacity to cope with the record crowds expected. Meanwhile, we're
delighted to announce that Maria Ressa, a TIME Person of the Year in 2018,
will be our keynote speaker.
<https://gijn.us5.list-manage.com/track/click?u=0212d7db984672e4fe5ac3daf&id=b5e8b22289&e=b5b6a28b13>
A
global symbol of press freedom, Ressa and her muckraking Rappler news staff
are under sustained political and legal attack by the Duterte government in
the Philippines. Maria is as inspiring as she is courageous.
