Freeing The Press...
Today is World Press Freedom Day.
Today is a day we raise awareness of the importance of freedom of the press and to remind our government of its duty to respect and uphold the right to freedom .
Our Press is far from free. Let's continue our fight for Press freedom. Let's fight to remove the shackles that are constricting and restricting our media from doing what it is supposed to be doing -- informing the public truthfully, without prejudices, without fear or favour, without any interference.
Tomorrow, at 2pm at the Annexe, Central Market, Kuala Lumpur, join BENAR, a civil society group that is promoting Truth In Reporting. Click here.
Meanwhile, join us in calling for the repeal of all draconian and outdated laws regulating the Press, including the Printing Presses and Publications Act!
