Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas – Attacks on Ecuador’s media have soared in year since alleged coup attempt, report says
This article is critical of the treatment towards members of the press in Ecuador, country where the Chevron Ecuador trial has taken place:
One year after the alleged attempted coup d’etat that shook Ecuador on Sept. 30, 2010 (known as 30S), Fundamedios published a report about attacks against the media and freedom of expression in the country. The report studies attacks before and after 30S, and shows a significant increase in the number of aggressions against journalists in the last year.
Fundamedios reports 211 attacks against journalists in the year since 30S, which account for “52 percent of all attacks against freedom of the press in Ecuador during the last four years.”
