SHADOW REPORT ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL IN LATIN AMERICA

Violence and other types of attacks against journalists (threats, intimidation, legal/judicial harassment, obstruction of work, online and offline surveillance, destruction of equipment, confiscation of assets, among others) are not only crimes, but also require special consideration given the public nature of journalistic work. They represent violations of society’s right to be informed. Independent journalism and the enabling environment it requires are pillars of democracy. Journalists must be able to work safely if the media is to act as a watchdog, and to draw attention to the failings of power, such as corruption, misuse of resources, and abuse.
