World Press Freedom Day 2021

Reblogged on https://ukrainetoday.org/
Thank you very much!

Globalisation, furry animals and anything but fishing

Spoiler: Today, 3rd of May, is World Press Freedom Day 2021. Press freedom is under duress in many countries and journalists are being harassed, jailed and killed by authoritarian regimes.

It’s not getting better. More journalists were reported missing, imprisoned, or murdered in 2020 than in 2019. A lot of this took place in Belarus where Lukashenka, with support of Putin, decided to clamp down on journalists whose reports about how his police’s brutal attacks on peaceful demonstrators.

Decreased world press freedom goes hand in hand with the increased autocratisation of the world. Autocratic leaders do not want a free press to report about its nefarious activities. Belarus and Russia lead the fight against the free press.

  • Just the Putinazis Russia and Bela-Russia at the bottom of the freedom index in Europe. But journos still copy and paste their propaganda daily around the world…

    • Russia fell one spot in Reporters Without Borders’ 2021 global press freedom index to 150th place, ranking below countries such as Zimbabwe and South Sudan. Muscovy are on a downwards spiral, quickly catching up to NK.
