It’s that time of year again. 2 November is approaching and with it comes the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists.
Threats and attacks of various forms continue against journalists and the media community worldwide, and impunity continues to be the norm in the majority of cases. However, IFEX network-wide No Impunity Campaign is unwavering.
This year IFEX is marking 2 November by profiling our emblematic cases in new focus countries, Bahrain (profile forthcoming) and Cambodia, as well as existing cases in Colombia, Pakistan and the Gambia.
IFEX will also be using the opportunity to highlight UNESCO’s World Trends in Free Expression and Media Development report, which contains the 2017 data on journalist killings condemned by the Director-General and the status of judicial investigations, as provided by States.
IFEX members around the globe also use the occasion to bolster their own fight against impunity with campaigns, workshops, press conferences and other events.
Below you will find a number of messages and materials that can be used to complement your existing plans or on their own!
When promoting IFEX materials you are encouraged to use the hashtag #NoImpunity or join UNESCO’s social media campaign under #EndImpunity #JournoSafe.
Thank you to everyone for your participation!
