And Yet Another Field Trip! This One With Prof. Ross Daly to The Committee to Protect Journalists

Prof. Daly and Purchase Journalism Students at the Committee to Protect Journalists in Manhattan

At the height of the Egyptian uprising last year, Purchase journalism students learned Friday, a call came into the offices of the Committee to Protect Journalists. An editor just blocks from Tahrir Square was on the line.

“You have to tell people: They’re killing us! They’re killing us!” he said.

Gypsy Guillén Kaiser, who took the call, shared that chilling story with students visiting the committee’s Manhattan offices.

The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) works to bring public pressure on behalf of journalists who have been murdered, kidnapped, imprisoned, or threatened in other ways, said Guillén Kaiser, the committee’s advocacy and communications director.

“By journalists, for journalists and using the tools of journalism,” she said. “We want to use our research not only to raise awareness but to provoke action, to bring about some result.”

This was the third trip in a week for peripatetic Purchase journalism students. Other classes went to CBS, and to the Journal News.

The students at CPJ, members of Professor Ross Daly’s International Issues Reporting class, were given copies of reports from the committee, including the recently released, 451-page book, “Attacks on the Press in 2011.”

“We get to keep this?” said Stephanie Spencer. “That’s so cool.”

The dozen students agreed that the visit was interesting and informative, but Amanda Rosa, a soon-to-be journalism graduate, had an additional thought.

“It’s nice to know there’s somebody out there watching for us,” she said.
