Reporters Without Borders Campaign Leader Kristin Bässe said, “We want to reach young people and engage them in the topic and inform them about press freedom issues.”
Bässe said Minecraft allowed the republication of material that wasn’t accessible in certain countries because of censorship.
More than 100,000 people had visited the library and there had been attempts to hack the server, she said.
People generally used a VPN to bypass restrictions in countries with suppression.
Bässe said The Uncensored Library showed there were more ways to overcome censorship than people think.
About one to two articles had been added per week, but this was subject to change.
Bässe said Reporters Without Borders were focused on adding content about effects on press freedom during COVID-19.
Correspondent Mary Ann Jolley worked in countries with high censorship and was deported from Malaysia in 2015, as a result of her investigative reporting.
The lives of many journalists who live in countries without freedom of speech were in danger, Jolley said.
Jolley said people were “tech-savvy” as they were having to deal with suppression and “use technology cleverly”.
She said that while working on a story about COVID-19 in Indonesia, people who weren't journalists were fearful to give information as the Government could act against them.
Jolley said even in New Zealand and Australia people could be scared to show their faces.
Access to articles was important because the more educated people were, the less likely they were to be exploited and more likely to be able to fight for their rights, she said.
