Media under threat, Journalism is not a crime - Africa

Media under threat, Journalism is not a crime – Africa

In most African countries, freedom of the press is always under threat. Too often, we only hear about the difficulties facing our brave reporters when, for one reason or another, an individual or a group of journalists becomes a cause célèbre. But we should remember that the famous examples of imprisoned, harassed, and even killed journalists are just the tip of the iceberg. And why are journalists attacked so? Because the pen is mighty. Each crackdown on the media is really an expression of the influence of the press. If it weren’t important, it wouldn’t be so much under attack.

We remain in solidarity with all our courageous colleagues.
