Jailed for Reporting: Guatemalan Authorities Target Leading Journalist
José Rubén Zamora is one of Central America’s most celebrated journalists.

This event is organized by the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) in partnership with the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Inter American Press Association (IAPA).
