We call for the immediate and unconditional release of Pham Doan Trang. The Vietnamese #journalist was arrested on Tuesday evening for alleged "anti-state propaganda" - the latest example of the persecution of critical voices in Vietnam. "I don't just want freedom for myself, it's too easy. No, I want something bigger - freedom for Vietnam," Trang wrote in a May 2019 letter with the intent that if she were arrested, it would be made public. We honored Trang with the 2019 Press Freedom Award for High Impact Journalism. In a video message she told us about the state of press freedom in Vietnam.
