Help needed to support imprisoned cyberjournalists

Reporters Without Borders, the international organization that seeks to protect press freedom globally, has called on media outlets to sponsor one of more than 130 journalists jailed worldwide. On Nov. 24 (Jailed Journalists' Support Day) and May 3 (World Press Freedom Day) of each year, all media sponsors are asked to call attention to the imprisoned journalists they have adopted by writing about them and in doing so, to ensure that their suffering is not forgotten. No financial contributions are required of sponsors or their media organizations. Several sponsored journalists recently freed in part due to the efforts of their sponsors include Moroccan journalist Ali Lmrabet, Chinese journalist Du Daobin and Cuban journalist Bernardo Arevalo Padron.
