In July 2008, Javier Bauluz drove the Manifest about Journalism and Human Rights together with a thousand of journalists and protectors of rights.
Human journalism, the media that manages Bauluz, counts on a professional editorial department with correspondents, contributors and analysts in different parts of the world. He is focused on people, especially the weakest ones, which are even more invisible for the traditional media.
