World Press Freedom Day - May 3, 2022 "Freedom of Information" Subject Week

May 01, 2022

World Press Freedom Day (May 3) acts as a reminder to governments of the need to respect their commitment to press freedom and is also a day of reflection among media professionals about issues of press freedom and professional ethics. Just as importantly, World Press Freedom Day is a day of support for media which are targets for the restraint, or abolition, of press freedom. It is also a day of remembrance for those journalists who lost their lives in the pursuit of a story”.
