Free expression is under threat around the world. While advances in technology increase access to information, open lines of communication, and unite like-minded citizens with unprecedented speed, governments wanting to suppress dissent respond by employing violence, surveillance, and intimidation.

In BLACKOUT, a series made possible by Jigsaw, VICE News takes viewers across the globe, from Pakistan to Belarus, to examine technology's role in the ongoing fight for free expression.
