EFD Rights Watch: Erdoğan among “Great People” in RSF’s annual list. 22 lawyers tried in Silivri… #SavunmayaÖzgürlük


Journalists killed, bloggers imprisoned, censorship…, the overall level of freedom of information violations continues to be very high and the situation is still worrying in 2013 as proved by the annual round-up published on December 13th, 2013 by Reporters Without Borders.

Reporters Without Borders and its agency BETC denounce this alarming observation with their new campaign : Great People. By staging the propaganda by the enemies of press freedom, they remind with irony that without independent journalists, you would have to content yourself with this kind of “information”.

Made in collaboration with Rita Films and Green United Music, the campaign will be broadcasted on the major French TV channels and on the Internet from December 21st.
