    What is the criminality in live streaming a fire? Today one can happen to be at a place and end up witnessing a newsworthy event and with the press of a few buttons live stream it to the world. Is this a ploy to prevent aragalaya activists and supporters from getting clean police reports to migrate or travel overseas?

    Most organizers of aragalaya are dead under mysterious circumstances.
