World Press Freedom Day

“No democracy is complete without access to transparent and reliable information. It is the cornerstone for building fair and impartial institutions, holding leaders accountable and speaking truth to power.”

António Guterres, United Nations Secretary-General

World Press Freedom Day was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in December 1993, following the recommendation of UNESCO’s General Conference. Since then, on the 3rd of May World Press Freedom Day is celebrated worldwide.
