About Us

“Young people don’t care about the world around them.”

Filibuster seeks to challenge this. 

Filibuster is a platform for young people to get their opinions published, run entirely by student volunteers with ages ranging from 15 to 25. We have a team of young writers worldwide, all with varying views and outlooks on life, all united by a passion to be heard and influence the agenda.

Filibuster is a non-partisan organisation – we don’t take sides. Instead, we guarantee all our writers the independence and freedom take sides on the political causes and issues as they so wish.
