World Press Freedom Day: Shaping a Future of Rights
World Press Freedom Day is celebrated on May 3 to remind governments worldwide to respect and protect the freedom of expression of journalists and media workers. It’s also a day to recognize the importance of independent media in strengthening democracy and honoring those who have lost their lives while doing their jobs.
This year, we celebrate the 30th anniversary of World Press Freedom Day with the theme: “Shaping a Future of Rights: Freedom of Expression as a Driver for all Human Rights.” We should remember the important role of journalists and media workers who provide accurate and timely information to the public. Let’s work together to defend and promote the freedom of expression and press freedom worldwide.
