World Press Freedom DayProtecting Those Who Champion Free Speech

In many parts of the world, journalists, bloggers and writers risk their safety, their jobs and even their very lives as they speak truth to power. Facing threats and intimidation, these individuals battle efforts by governments or others to control the flow of information. Freedom of expression is an essential human right, and Amnesty International works to protect those who find themselves at risk simply for exercising this right.

As we mark World Press Freedom Day on May 3, the individuals described below need our support as they speak out for justice and human rights. See below to learn more about each person’s story and to take action to help.
