The accusations endanger our colleague, as well as all journalists, photographers and editors who cover demonstrations for the national and international press in the midst of many difficulties.
From APIC we would like to remind Semana magazine that having a certain editorial line does not prevent it from maintaining an ethic of respect for the work of all journalists, regardless of their political position in public or private spaces.
