Reporters Without Borders denounces the “Predators of Press Freedom” by releasing its annual list of the worst violators and launching its latest high-profile campaign ad.
Reporters Without Borders issued its first predators list in 2001. The aim of these annual lists is to turn the spotlight on the presidents, ministers, generals and militia leaders who systematically target journalists.
The 2010 list of predators will be released on 3 May. At the same time, Reporters Without Borders will also launch its new campaign ad, pointing the finger at these predators. The campaign was designed by Saatchi & Saatchi and the artists Stephen J Shanabrook and Veronika Georgieva, who put their talent in the service of press freedom.
