Venezuela: New Wave of Online Threats

Several Venezuelan cartoonists, journalists, writers and artists have been the target of a series of threats through Twitter, telephone and text messages, according to news portal Noticias 24. They began after a number of anonymous users spread the victims’ personal contact information, said the Press and Society Institute in Venezuela (Ipys in Spanish).

Alejandro Martínez from The Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas Blog reports on a new wave of threats against journalists and media workers.

Martinez adds that this year Ipys Venezuela has registered “25 violations against the integrity of journalists and eight cyber-attacks.”
