Press freedom is declining on all fronts with record numbers of journalists imprisoned, attacked or killed while reporting.

Organisations Reporters Without Borders and Commitee to Protect Journalists, among others, have been documenting the ongoing deterioration of press freedom around the globe. 

On World Press Freedom Day, which stands upon the principles of media freedom and safety of journalists, we remember those who gave their lives in the field, those imprisoned and those that are under attack just because of their job.
