Misinformation and Fake News are a genuine threat to our democracy. Our journalists have been called liars. The threats of murder and rape to our journalists have increased to levels never before seen.

These attacks on the media cannot be tolerated in a Free Democracy. Come support our colleagues on World Press Freedom Day so that we can, together, DEFEND TRUTH.

We invite all political parties, religious institutions, civil society organisations and the public at large to come together in the defence of press freedom.
