Journalist safety

Journalist safety

The right to work without threat of violence is a basic human right. Everyone – from journalists, to bloggers, to people who just have something to say – has the right to form and express his or her opinions. Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights upholds this right to freely seek, receive and send out information, ideas and opinions through any media.

For freedom of expression to exist, there must be a free press, and the safety and security of journalists is the hallmark of a free press.
