Reacting to the upsurge in violence against media professionals, the UN Secretary General Antonio Guteress stated;
“On World Press Freedom Day, I call on governments to strengthen Press Freedom and to protect journalists. Promoting a free press is standing up for our rights”.

Journalists continue reflections on press freedom, and call on governments to refrain from harassments, unjust detentions, killings and attacks.
