Light for the Voiceless
LIGHT of CATHOLICS in ASIA
At LiCAS.news, we write for the governed, not the governors.
We tell the stories of those on the fringe of society with empathy and respect. We shine the spotlight in the darkness of the disadvantaged and neglected. We are there to give voice to the voiceless.
From families who seek justice for their lost loved ones to worshippers who are forced to express their faith underground. From ethnic groups persecuted for their beliefs to indigenous tribes robbed of their ancestral land.
Our coverage from Asia brings to the world stories of human rights violations, denial of justice and religious persecution in some of the world’s fastest growing economies, all within the political backdrop of eroding religious and press freedom.
Staffed entirely by lay-people across Asia, LiCAS.news witnesses and supports the mission of the Catholic Church in their work to spread the Good News to all corners of society.
Our editorial and political independence is unique in Asia.
Our content is and will always be freely accessible.
Our global community of readers gives us the strength and support to fulfil our mission each day — to be the voice for the voiceless.
