Anna Politkovskaya was an outstanding woman, devoted writer, and Human Rights activist. On October 7th 2006, a group of cowards assassinated her because they were afraid to face the truth. She was murdered because she exposed the crimes of the Russian government. Throughout the years Politkovskaya had been tracked down, followed, and investigated but that did not discourage her. Even after several failed assassination attempts, she kept going because she knew that she possessed a gift that was no match for the Russian government. She had the gift of writing, and wrote about the facts. Anna revealed the secrets that government tried kept hidden, and exposed their evil deeds. Even though her life was at stake she never gave up, she knew that it was her duty to keep the world informed. The world will never forget her. We salute Anna Politkovskaya.

Russian Journalist Anna Politkovskaya to Help in Hostage Negotiations in Moscow

Los Angeles, California, October 24, 2002 -- Anna Politkovskaya, a journalist with the Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta who was scheduled to receive a Courage in Journalism Award from the International Women's Media Foundation during ceremonies in Los Angeles tonight, has flown home to help in negotiations with Chechen rebels who are holding up to 700 people hostage in a Moscow theater.
Politkovskaya received word late on October 23 that the rebels had asked her to participate in negotiations. She left Los Angeles on the early morning of October 24. The following message was read by John Puerner, publisher of the Los Angeles Times, during the awards ceremonies.
Message from Anna Politkovskaya, IWMF Courage in Journalism Awards, Los Angeles, California, October 24, 2002:
October 24, 2002; Los Angeles, 4:10 a.m
“Dear friends! I want to thank you once again. It is a great honor for me to receive the Courage in Journalism Award.
However - and I think you will agree with me - it is an even greater honor for me to respond when Destiny offers the opportunity to help people when a crisis strikes.
There's a big tragedy unfolding in Russia today, and those circumstances require that it is today, and not a day later, that I need to prove that I indeed have courage.
I have always believed that Russian journalism, first and foremost, is the journalism of action. The journalism of taking the step that you simply must take.
Please pray for us, those who are directly affected by this crisis. And of course, say a prayer for me.
I am ever more convinced that the war in Chechnya must be brought to an end. And today, the time has come for me to appeal to President Bush and plead with him to use his influence on President Putin to stop the bloodshed in Chechnya, and to prevent it in Moscow."
