Show your support for threatened journalists
By Padraig Reidy / 26 February 2014
Across the UK – newsrooms, offices, shops, commuters, tourists – are asked to stop at midday and cover their mouths with whatever is at hand, take a selfie and post it online using the hashtag #FreeAJStaff.
Please sign the Petition, pass the message on and join this Global Day of Action in any way you can:
Index on Censorship has dedicated its milestone 250th issue to exploring the increasing threats to reporters worldwide. Its special report, Truth in Danger, Danger in Truth: Journalists Under Fire and Under Pressure, is out soon. Highlights include Lindsey Hilsum, writing about her friend and colleague, the murdered war reporter Marie Colvin, and asking whether journalists should still be covering war zones. Stephen Grey looks at the difficulties of protecting sources in an era of mass surveillance.
