Reporters Without Borders, kept on constant alert via its network of over 100 correspondents, condemns any attack on press freedom world-wide by keeping the media and public opinion informed through press releases and public-awareness campaigns.
The association defends journalists and other media contributors and professionals who have been imprisoned or persecuted for doing their work.
The organisation supports journalists who are being threatened in their own countries and provides financial and other types of support to their needy families.
Reporters Without Borders is fighting to reduce the use of censorship and to oppose laws designed to restrict press freedom.
The association is also working to improve the safety of journalists world-wide, particularly in war zones.
