About the book:
Freedom of press the sitting duck is about journalists who get killed because of their works buy bandits who like controlling the press in fear of them being exposed to the audience.
It is a book of poetry:
Time after time, journalists are killed for their works by criminal groups who don’t like the truth. Journalists are often victims of violence in countries like: Russia, Turkey, Mexico, Democratic Republic of Congo, Republic of the Congo, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Belarus, Iran, Palestine, Gabon, Somalia and many other countries. Criminals who stand behind such barbaric are unpunished and they are covered for their lawlessness. Many journalists are silent by groups who hate an independent press.
The idea behind the book:
The person who has spoken about these kinds of attacks is Christiane Amanpour from CNN who is one of my favourite anchors. I was watching a documentary “Scream Bloody Murder” and by accident, I discovered her message. I was shocked about what she said because the press has a right to report where they are in the world. In the EU article 6, everyone has the right to be free. In article 11, it says that we have a right to freedom of speech and freedom of information. These are our fundamental rights.
Justice does not come cheap:
Journalists or anchors are human beings like us and they do what they do because they love it and they make a living of it. The purpose of the free press is to inform is about the circumstances that they see around the world so that we can have an idea about what is going on in our communities and around the world. My hope is that laws are enforced by the UN, if the UN cares about free speech and the freedom of press. I hope that CPJ keeps fighting a big battle against bandits who are so insecure that they would have to kill for their survival.
My thanks to Christiane Amanpour from CNN for brining this topic on Youtube and I owe this book to her and many other journalists who risk their lives reporting in dangerous places. My hope is that the families of the victims get the help and the justice they need so that they can be healed. Thank you for stepping in this blog.
