Journalists are workers, time to end the repression against them

Australian journalist Peter Greste’s detention in an Egyptian jail on trumped up charges is one of the many dangers that journalists face as they try to do their job. Many other journalists in the region have felt the weight of authority via abductionsarrests or being murdered. In Turkey alone, there are currently over 40 journalists serving jail time because of their news covering. The situation has become so intolerable that the International Federation of Journalists have initiated an international campaign to raise awareness of the danger that journalists face and calling for their protection.
