Group to launch virtual press freedom campaign
The Working Group for Press Freedom has co-organised a two-week campaign with the theme “Information as a Public Good” on social media to promote and highlight the importance of the freedom of the press and urge the public’s participation.
In a press release, the working group – comprising 13 journalists’ associations and civil society organisations – said the campaign will begin from April 26 to May 10 to celebrate World Press Freedom Day 2021.
The press release said that during the campaign, people will post short messages about information as a public good, post videos of the roles of journalists and the media, Facebook profile photo frames, and radio and social media talks of topics concerning journalists.
On May 3, the topic “Press Freedom and improved cooperation” will be presented with speakers from relevant ministries and institutions as well as representatives of national and international organisations working in the information field in attendance.
