A Bitter Taste of Freedom: Paying Homage and Demanding Justice for Anna Politkovskaya

"The struggle of man against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting" - Milan Kundera

"People sometimes pay with their lives for saying aloud what they think."
 - Anna Politkovskaya  August 30, 1958 - October 7, 2006

Anna Politkovskaya was a journalist who spoke truth to power in Russia. She was a critic of Vladimir Putin. She was shot dead in her apartment on Putin's birthday in 2006. Six individuals have been brought to justice, but the mastermind remains free 12 years after her assassination. Below is a 2011 documentary about this courageous woman who paid the ultimate price for seeking the truth and reporting it.

She is missed. #JusticeForAnna #EndImpunity
