About this project

UPDATE POSTED: Check out the update tab to see new video, RACHEL IS BACK IN LIBYA!

Shortcut to kickstarter campaign: www.LibyaTrueStory.com

Rachel Anderson, an American journalist who was embedded with several youth groups in Libya in Feb/Mar 2011, returns to document and file weekly reports on the real life experiences of how the revolution is affecting the young fighters and activists.  From influential rap music, to new freedoms for young women, revolution manifests itself in unexpected ways.

By supporting Rachel as an independent journalist, you will be helping to provide for security, accommodations, daily living, satellite equipment, and a small communications team in the US assisting in logistics for 8 weeks. Any donations passed the goal will ensure a longer stay and continued coverage.

Donors will have a direct connection to the evolving on-the-ground events and personal stories via weekly video reports. Rachel is receiving communications and logistical support from One Day on Earth, who will host the video reports.

During the current wave of revolutions in the Middle East, Rachel has filed reports for PBS Frontline and HDnet. She holds a degree in Journalism from University of Nebraska - Lincoln.
