Today more than 100 journalists are in prison for "crimes" such as revealing inconvenient information, calling for greater personal freedoms and refusing to be censored or follow an imposed line.
In fact, for the "crime" of simply doing their job.
And it's an important job they do, as free access to information and the freedom of speech are essential civil rights.
Please visit Reporters Without Borders at www.rsf.org
to sign the petitions and to support the great work RSF does to promote the freedom of the press and the freedom of information and to fight censorship and the oppression of free speech.
