OPC Condemns Mistreatment of Journalists in Ferguson, Missouri
The Overseas Press Club of America most strenuously protests the treatment of journalists at the hands of local law enforcement in Ferguson, Missouri.
Throughout its history, the OPC has mostly sought to safeguard reporters on hazardous assignments outside the United States. It is therefore with both shame and outrage that we condemn the police actions in Ferguson that have put not only American reporters at risk in their own country but also have endangered journalists from other nations who have come to cover the story.
The Overseas Press Club of America demands that restrictions on reporting in Ferguson be removed immediately and unconditionally.
The U.S. has been at the forefront of protecting press freedoms around the world. It is disgraceful for the same freedoms to be so blatantly shoved aside on our own soil.
Very truly yours,
Howard Chua-Eoan, Chairman Freedom of the Press Committee
Michael S. Serrill, President Overseas Press Club of America
