WORLD PRESS FREEDOM DAY – Resources, links, contacts
Dear friends, the following list has been compiled by the community radio and media team volunteers of the Euro-Mediterranean Resources Network (EuroMernet) and of the UK Network of No Hate Speech Movement (NHSM). Both organisations had been regularly co-organising public events every year on World Press Freedom Day, but due to the COVID-19 lockdown, this year’s planned public event will unfortunately not take place. Therefore EuroMernet and No Hate Speech UK teams decided to compile a list of key events, exclusive reports, campaigns, petitions and statements by the UK-based and global press freedom organisations and regional bodies.
For the photos, statements, reports from public events by EuroMernet and No Hate Speech UK in previous years, including the library exhibitions on themes such as the imprisoned journalists, sexist hate speech against female journalists and poetry for press freedom, please visit the events archives of EuroMernet social media pages, primarily the EuroMernet Facebook page.
The following list is not exhaustive and it includes only a handful of leading press freedom organisations. We therefore would like to encourage the readers of this document to search the internet for more resources on press freedom. In case you cannot find press freedom information on any of the 82 countries and territories in Euro-Mediterranean/MENA regions that we regularly monitor, please do not hesitate to write to us for country-specific resources and contacts: EuroMernet or No Hate Speech UK
Many thanks in advance for sharing and disseminating this information.
Love, peace and solidarity,
#EuroMernet and #NoHateSpeechUK teams
