Stop the Murder of Journalists

Target: K. K. Venugopal, Attorney General of India

Goal: Protect journalists from harassment and death in India.

Two journalists were murdered in a single month in India, forcing others in the field to question their safety and security. Not only are journalists being violently attacked, they’re also being silenced and forbidden from reporting on sensitive subjects.

India is just one of the many countries facing a crackdown on press freedoms. In a little over two decades, about 30 journalists have been killed in the country. Not one murderer has been convicted, leaving journalists in fear for their lives.

Journalists should not be afraid of doing their job. In bringing the truth to citizens, they should not have to worry about death. Sign the petition and demand that the government of India work harder to protect the press from this violence.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney General Venugopal,

In your country, two journalists have been killed in a month, bringing the total murder of journalists in India to an alarming 30. Not a single person has been convicted for this violence, leaving journalists frightened and even silenced.

It is the job of the press to inform the public and hold those in power accountable. Reporters must be protected so they can do their job safely, without fear. I ask that your government work to protect reporters and hold those who have harmed them responsible.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
