Emergencies Response Team
CPJ's Emergencies Response Team provides comprehensive, life-saving support to journalists and media support staff working around the world through up-to-date safety and security information and rapid response assistance to journalists at risk.
Journalists are detained, injured
, and prevented from covering mass protests in Venezuela as that country's political crisis shows little sign of easing. Police take journalists' equipment and fire tear gas canisters directly at working reporters. Internet users say that some news websites are inaccessible. CPJ documents
dangers to the media and offers safety advice
to those covering the unrest.
