Action Alert: Protect Your Journalists!

Freedom of speech is being contested in every country around the world. Our knowledge of issues beyond US borders informs our decisions — from who to vote into office to whether or not to buy gas from Shell or Exxon. When a journalist is imprisoned in Peru or a progressive radio station is denied a license to broadcast in Croatia, that access begins to erode.

The Canadian Committee to Protect Journalists provides regularly updated action alerts, as well as other journalism resource links from around the globe. Each case they highlight offers a listing of who you should contact and how to reach them if you want to get involved. AMARC’s International Solidarity Network provides updates on the successes and failures of worldwide community radio stations. Keep yourself informed: Protect your journalists.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
