Press freedom webinar - Counting the cost of increasing attacks

The past year has been tough for press freedom, and has seen the jobs of many journalists around the world become more dangerous.

Join us at midday on Wednesday 12 May to hear from Australian reporters who have been on the front line of a disturbing increase in violence and hostility towards the media as we mark World Press Freedom Day (3 May) with a lunchtime webinar discussion of the issue, which the Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance sounds the alarm on in its 2021 press freedom report.
