Anas Alaoui

Hi all.
My name is Anas. Apparently, I am the second Anas on GVO, but you can call me Annouss.
I've been blogging for 5 years now. It started with something like: “Hey look mum, I'm on the internet. See ? That's my photo”.

Then came the time of blogging for a cause, a cause I made mine as I was also an activist. This cause is: freedom of speech.
No matter what you say, no matter what you think as long as you respect rules and laws you should not be afraid of being harmed or imprisoned. Unfortunately, that is not yet the case in many countries.

But that is not the only reason I blog for. Blogs, Forums, Twitter feeds are a form of expression and platforms for debate, exchanging ideas and openess to the world out there.

So with your help and collaboration, let's make ours this GVO motto: “The world is talking. Are you listening ?”
