1,010 journalists have been killed between 2006-2017.

Today and every single day, let's speak out and speak up for the fallen ones & the threatened ones, because #TruthNeverDies. #EndImpunity #PressFreedom #JournoSafe #PersonOfTheYear #TheGuardians #Time #Democracy #Journalism #Media #Journalists

world. Time Magazine has announced its Person of the Year 2018 as “The Guardi

Time Magazine has announced its Person of the Year 2018 as “The Guardians,” journalists who were killed or imprisoned for their work exposing “the manipulation and the abuse of truth around the world.” They are: • Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the Washington Post columnist who was killed inside Saudi Arabia’s consulate in Istanbul. Khashoggi was a vocal critic of the Saudi government and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. This is the first time the Person of the Year has been awarded to a deceased person. • Burmese journalists Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, two Reuters journalists who were jailed for seven years for uncovering a massacre of Rohingya Muslims. Their wives appear on the cover holding their photographs. • The staff of the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland, where five staff members were shot to death after a gunman opened fire in their newsroom. The gunman had a years-long vendetta against the paper after it published a column about him pleading guilty to harassing a former high school classmate in 2011. The surviving staff continued to work after the tragedy, tweeting “we are putting out a damn paper tomorrow.” • Filipino journalist Maria Ressa, the editor of the Rappler, a news site in the Philippines known for its reporting on President Rodrigo Duterte’s extrajudicial killings. Ressa was indicted last month on tax evasion charges, which she has called “political harassment.” (📸: @time) - #TIMEPOY #jamalkhashoggi #walone #kyawsoeoo #mariaressa #duterte #capitalgazette #time #timemagazine #personoftheyear #journalism #journalist #reporter #columnist #journalists #pressfreedom #freespeech #freepress #truth #newspaper #mohammadbinsalman #rohingya #duterte #saudiarabia #myanmar #annapolis #maryland #usa #america #philippines

Two Reuters journalists who uncovered a massacre of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar have been sentenced to seven years in prison. Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo were found guilty on Monday of violating state secrets laws when they were collecting evidence about the murders of 10 Rohingya men by the army in northern Rakhine in September 2017. “I have no fear,” Wa Lone said after the verdict. “I have not done anything wrong. I believe in justice, democracy and freedom.” The two men both have families with young children and have been in prison since being arrested in December 2017 (📷: Reuters, Getty) - #walone #kyawsoeoo #reuters #journalism #journalist #journalists #reporter #reporters #report #press #media #pressfreedom #freedomofthepress #freepress #rohingya #rohingyamuslim #muslim #islam #muslims #massacre #aungsansuukyi #yangon #myanmar #burma #burmese

committeetoprotectjournalists. Egyptian authorities detained journalist Ahmed Gamal Ziada at Cairo In

Egyptian authorities detained journalist Ahmed Gamal Ziada at Cairo International Airport upon his return to Egypt from Tunisia on January 29. Ziada was held incommunicado until he was charged for spreading false news on February 13. At the time of CPJ’s annual prison census, Egypt had 19 journalists jailed on false news charges, the most in any country. Weeks after Ziada, a local journalist, was detained, New York Times correspondent David D. Kirkpatrick was detained at the Cairo airport on February 18. Authorities confiscated Kirkpatrick's phone and held him incommunicado in the airport for seven hours without food or water before forcing him onto a flight back to London without explanation.

Hundreds of people in Ruse, Bulgaria, held a candlelit vigil on Monday for Viktoria Marinova, a 30-year-old TV journalist whose body had been found in a park near the River Danube on Saturday. She had also been raped before she was killed. Marinova, who was the host of an investigative TV show whose first episode explored the misuse of EU funds, is the third high-profile journalist to be killed in the European Union in the past year. Authorities say they are investigating all possibilities related to her death but say they are cautious about linking it to her work. Bulgaria has been ranked as one of the most corrupt nations in the EU and is considered the worst in terms of press freedom.

This year, @time magazine recognizes “The Guardians and the War on Truth” as the Person of the Year; four journalists and one news organization: Jamal Khashoggi, murdered; Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, convicted; Maria Ressa, indicted; and The Capital Gazette of #Annapolis, #Maryland, where four reporters and a sales assistant were murdered earlier this year. Saudi journalist and @WashingtonPost columnist Jamal Khashoggi, who was murdered in the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul on October 2, is the subject of CPJ's campaign #JusticeForJamal. The two Reuters reporters Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo are serving seven years each in prison on charges of violating #Myanmar's colonial-era Official Secrets Act. Wednesday, December 12, marks the one-year anniversary of their arrest. #MariaRessa is CPJ's 2018 Gwen Ifill Press Freedom Awardee. The report also highlights CPJ's International Press Freedom awardees Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Quynh of #Vietnam, Luz Mely Reyes of #Venezuela, Amal Habbani of #Sudan, and Can Dündar of #Turkey. “The attacks against the press feed into populism’s dark side,” the report says. The journalists and news organizations selected for the #TimePersonOfTheYear “are representative of a broader fight by countless others around the world,” jailed and murdered. So far in 2018, at least 52 journalists have been killed in relation to their work worldwide.

Jamal Khashoggi, a columnist for the Washington Post, disappeared two weeks ago after he was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, where Turkish officials claim that he was dismembered and killed by a team of Saudi agents inside. According to audio recordings described by Turkish officials, a team of 15 Saudi agents seized Khashoggi as soon as he entered the consulate on Oct. 2 and proceeded to beat and torture him, eventually cutting off his fingers, dismembering and beheading him. Turkish officials say that a top Saudi doctor of forensics was also brought along for the dissection and disposal of the body. Khashoggi, 60, is one of the most well-known media figures in Saudia Arabia and a vocal critic of the Saudi government and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman and is believed to have been targeted for his dissent, according to the New York Times. Saudi authorities have denied any involvement with Khashoggi’s disappearance, but American intelligence officials say they have growing circumstantial evidence that Crown Prince Mohammed was involved.

guardian. Journalism is more dangerous – and more under threat – than at any poi

Journalism is more dangerous – and more under threat – than at any point in the last decade, according to a new report, which found that 78 journalists were killed last year while doing their job. 326 journalists were imprisoned for their work in 2017 and more than half of them were held in Turkey, China, and Egypt. According to Thomas Hughes, executive director of human rights organisation Article 19, hostility towards the media is becoming normalised around the world, amid a proliferation of populist leaders who have echoed the language of the US president and vilified journalists for simply doing their jobs.

Today marks the one-year anniversary of the assassination of Slovak investigative journalist Ján Kuciak and his fiancée Martina Kušnírová. The day was marked by a vigil held outside the Residence Palace in #Brussels to honor the bravery of Kuciak and to make clear that the pressure on Slovak authorities to investigate this double murder will be kept up. Kuciak's work uncovered allegations of tax fraud and financial crime, implicating prominent political and business leaders in Slovakia. The murders sparked large protests and the resignation of the former prime minister, interior minister, and chief of police.

I lit a candle to mark the first anniversary of the murder of Jan Kuciak and his fiancee Martina Kušnírová. That in the 21st century, in Europe, journalists are murdered for doing their job is unacceptable. It’s an attack on press freedom and freedom of expression. _________ #Kuziak #pressfreedom #journalism #bratislava #slovakia #listeningtour19

cami_appelgren_pd. PRESS FREEDOM under threat 
During today's session I had the pleasure

PRESS FREEDOM under threat During today's session I had the pleasure of meeting Annie Lööf (leader of Swedish Centre Party). In her keynote speech, she spoke about the challenges we are facing in Europe an how to tackle them. "The free Europe as we know it is shrinking and the structures we have built since the creation of the European Union are being torn down. For example, in Poland, attacks on courts and judges are systematic, and in Malta press freedom is under serious attack" Knowing that the press freedom threat in Malta is acknowledged abroad doesn't mean that we are weak and targeted. It means that we are growing stronger and the acknowledgement should empowers us to keep on fighting. A well functioning society enables debate and transperancy. That has to be part of the core principles of our country. Thank you Annie Lööf for the support! #WeWillNotBeSilenced #PressFreedom #TalOrangjo @partit_demokratiku

A esto le llamo "vivir la historia". - El Palacio Federal Legislativo es de esos lugares que emocionan tan solo con ver sus fachadas, o al menos eso es lo que causa en mí. Aunque en los últimos años ha sido asediado y atacado, hasta el punto de causarle un notable deterioro, no ha perdido su imponente majestuosidad. - Y es que lo realmente importante ocurre en su interior, en su hemiciclo de sesiones, donde cada semana se desarrolla una parte fundamental de la historia política de Venezuela y desde donde se le ha devuelto la esperanza a un país entero por un futuro mejor en el que se pueda vivir, no sobrevivir. - La magia del periodismo me ha permitido experimentar en muchas ocasiones -más de las que jamás imaginé- eso que yo llamo "vivir la historia", pero cada vez que lo hago desde la Asamblea Nacional es especial y me siento doblemente afortunado: primero, por hacer lo que me gusta y segundo, por contribuir con la reconstrucción de mi país a través de mi trabajo. - Seguiremos informando.
