Citizen Journalists in China


When you hear “journalist in China,” what do you think of? A reporter for state-run media? Someone who works for a major international news organization? Or a citizen journalist trying to skirt censorship? If you’re the latter type of journalist, you face more than just censorship. You could face long prison terms and even torture. Especially if you breach a politically sensitive topic at a politically sensitive time.
That’s what happened to self-taught Tibetan filmmaker Dhondup Wangchen, who was recently given an International Press Freedom Award from the Committee to Protect Journalists. We sit down with Madeline Earp, senior Asia researcher for CPJ, to talk about his case, and what it’s like for citizen journalists in China today.
大家都来看”九评共产党” ( VCD, 书)!
Let’s find “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party”(VCD, books)!
Quit the Evil Chinese Communist Party or its affiliated organizations today!
