This is the May 16, 2019 hearing on the "Dangers of Reporting Human Rights," held before the Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations of the House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the Opening Statement of Karen Bass: "The subcommittee is meeting today to hear testimony on the dangers of reporting on human rights. Today, we are here to highlight the dangers, the atrocities against journalists, press freedom, and to consider the various ways the international community can work to protect journalists. The seriousness of the threat to press freedom and global freedom, writ large, requires the United States to expand its alliances with fellow democracies and deepen its own commitment to democratic shared values. The world's democratic nations must show a united front and defend democracy as an international right in order to decrease the current authoritarian and anti-liberal trends across many places in the world." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Joel Simon, Sarah Repucci, Gulchehra Hoja and Hatice Cengiz.
