These actions undermine not only the physical integrity of journalists, but also the freedom of the media.
As a harsh reaction to the violence that threatens journalists, against the silence of the institutions responsible for condemning these acts, we decided to protest on Sunday from 16:00 to 17:00 before the General Prosecutor’s office.” Declare the journalists.
