Stand with the Arrested Journalists
So far more than 50 journalists have been arrested in the U.S. while covering the Occupy Wall Street movement. Free Press is working with journalists to document each arrest as it happens (see footage of one of the most recent arrests above). These arrests are becoming so commonplace that the United States’ ranking in the global press freedom index has plummeted 27 spots to number 47.
