Categories: East Asia, Philippines, Human Rights, Media & Journalism, Politics, Protest

The Public Liberties and Human Rights department at Aljazeera, in co-operation with several international organizations have produced a video [1] about the campaign to end impunity [2] for crimes against journalists:

The video supports the UN resolution [3] on the “Safety of Journalists and the Issue of Impunity”:

The United Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution A/RES/68/163 at its 68th session in 2013 which proclaimed 2 November as the ‘International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists’. The Resolution urged Member States to implement definite measures countering the present culture of impunity. The date was chosen in commemoration of the assassination of two French journalists in Mali on 2 November 2013.
