2012 CPJ International Press Freedom Awards (Text & Video)

The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) honors four brave journalists (from Brazil, Liberia, Kyrgyzstan and China) who have exposed crime, corruption, and human rights abuses in the face of intense intimidation. In a crowd of nearly 900 in New York’s Waldorf-Astoria grand ballroom, the winners of CPJ’s International Press Freedom Awards share one trait: indignation when they see injustice.

The above, CPJ’s Free the Press video premiered at the 2012 International Press Freedom Awards ceremony. The video, which features the growing plight of imprisoned journalists worldwide, will become the centerpiece of the forthcoming Free the Press, a campaign dedicated to winning the release of imprisoned journalists.
