IAPA survey: Press freedom in Venezuela is at risk
The study assessed several issues concerning press freedom
The IAPA conducted a survey entitled "Press freedom in the Americas" among 101 journalist or editors in 12 countries of the continent. Based on the findings, 82% of the respondents believe that Venezuela is the country where press freedom is more at risk.
The study assessed several issues, such as the factors threatening freedom of speech in the Americas, aggressions against journalist and the media, impunity in cases involving free press violations, self-censorship, and the relation between journalists and their governments.

Why did Gerardo come to Caracas? One day he took the decision, handed the car keys to his father, gave him his share of the cloth business they both owned in San Cristóbal and kissed his wife and two sons goodbye. "He told us he was going to continue fighting for Venezuela," the wife says. That was in mid-2013. He has been imprisoned since May 8, 2014.
