Journalists play a vital role in disseminating information, especially during times of conflict or political upheaval. It’s important to ensure they have the necessary space and protection to carry out their work without fear of intimidation or violence. We must condemn any attempts to obstruct or silence journalists and work to create an environment where they can operate freely and safely.
“It’s important for authorities to respect the role of journalists in a democratic society and to ensure their safety while they carry out their duties” Hopkin Delivers.
