As you’re aware, one of our colleagues from Voice of Democracy, Lay Samean, is in hospital after he was beaten by district security guards yesterday, a day before World Press Freedom Day.
This targeting of journalists and indiscriminate beatings has been more pronounced the last two days. It is both illegal and unacceptable that journalists and photographers are attacked by the government simply for doing their jobs.
Please join us today at Meta House at 5:30 p.m. to discuss this. The invitation is open to all working journalists and photographers; please, come only if you make your living from news work. Spread the word — whether Cambodian or foreign journalists [not for citizen journalists], it’s an important time for us to show our numbers and voice.
Hope to see you there.
