In what is easily one of my favorite Minecraft creations Reporters Without Borders contracted with a cool design company called BlockWorks to build a massive 12.5 million block library that houses the articles of silenced and murdered journalists from five of the world’s most restrictive and regressive governments. In the fight for democracy, these were some of the brightest lights and loudest voices, and, through the Uncensored Library, their work lives on.

Watch the video:

The best part about this project is that it’s interactive. You can visit this library, read the articles that posed such a great threat to their authoritarian governments, and get a visceral sense of the difficulties faced by people in these countries (and others just as restrictive) to locating information that their repressive leaders don’t want them to have.
