Journalism is NOT a crime! #Free James Ricketson Fundraising Campaign

Apr 16, 2018 — Free speech is the pre-eminent human right. Free speech is the right from which all other human rights flow. If we don’t protect our journalists we cannot protect our freedoms.

Governments worldwide continue to misuse the law to clamp down on the political opposition, on civil society and on ordinary individuals under the guise of the ‘rule of law’. The Rule of Law Index rates both the rule of law and ability to secure justice within the Cambodian legal system as the second lowest ranking out of 113 nations they review.

If we stand together to become a united voice, we can start a worldwide movement to #free James Ricketson, along with other journalists incarcerated by suppressive regimes who fear the words of the worlds journalists and truth tellers.

Your support for the Free James Ricketson fundraising campaign will fund our efforts to bring James Ricketson home and assist a public awareness campaign highlighting the plight of journalists incarcerated across the world for speaking their truth.

We cannot do this without your assistance.

With thanks and please, if you cannot help financially, and we understand that not everybody can, please have James in your thoughts and help us to help him by sharing this fundraising link across your social networks.
