World Press Freedom Day 2008

The 3rd of May is World Press Freedom Day. On that day we celebrate
press freedom. We honor those who dare to speak out and we acknowledge
the trials and tribulations they face. On that day we stand up for those
journalists whose mouths are forced shut. We draw attention to the
numbers of journalists being threatened, violated and even murdered. On
the 3rd of May we underline to the world the importance of what we at
Free Voice, our partner organizations in Asia and many others with us,
do on a daily basis: to support independent and free media.
