Careful monitoring of violations of freedom of expression is at the heart
of our mission. Our researchers have just finished compiling the annual
roundup for 2012 and the number of deaths is unprecedented.
With a one-third rise in the number of journalists killed in connection
with their work over 2011, and a record number of journalists in prison,
persecution of media personnel has rarely posed such a major threat to
freedom of expression!
88 journalists killed
193 journalists in prison
As we have said in previous emails, behind every journalist or blogger
killed or imprisoned, there is often a family that is also in danger.
Only your donations will enable us to protect the men, women and children
who are the victims of censorship and arbitrary persecution!
In an effort to prevent 2013 from being such a dark year for freedom of
information as 2012, I count on your support as a matter of urgency.
