Journalists Safety Contacts in Emergency

Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ.org)- http://www.cpj.org/
A nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to the global defense of press freedom. When would a journalist call upon CPJ?

  • In an emergency. Using local and foreign contacts, CPJ can intervene whenever foreign correspondents are in trouble. CPJ is also prepared to notify news organizations, government officials, and human rights organizations immediately of press freedom violations.
  • When traveling on assignment. CPJ can advise journalists covering dangerous assignments.
  • When covering the news. Attacks against the press are news, and they often serve as the first signal of a crackdown on all freedoms. CPJ is uniquely situated to provide journalists with information and insight into press conditions around the world.
  • When becoming a member. A basic membership costs only US$45, and each donation helps CPJ defend journalists. Members receive CPJs magazine, Dangerous Assignments; its annual book, Attacks on the Press; and its e-newsletter, CPJ Update.

ICRC hotline for journalists in conflict zones

Looking at all the media safety links Sheryl has listed, I don’t understand why all these groups are organised into one cohesive and powerful unit, instead of lots of small groups.
