The Committee for Free Expression is a human rights organization that advocates for the defense and promotion of the right to freedom of expression and access to public information in Honduras, as fundamental rights for the strengthening of democracy and the rule of law. It was born as a proposal of a coalition of members of the Civil Society and mainly with a communicational focus. The Committee for Free Expression (C-Libre) was created in 2001 to promote a qualitative change in Honduran journalism, characterized by growing censorship in the media and control exercised by the government, political groups and power economic.
