94 killings. This year, journalists and media workers have again paid the price. After a decrease recorded over three years in a row, the IFJ posts a marked increase in these gruesome statistics which remain very high. 

Now, it is urgent that the United Nations take their responsibility and adopt an International Convention dedicated to the protection of journalists and media professionals, so as to end impunity for their killers. 

Once again, the IFJ needs all its affiliates to pressure their national governments,  foreign affairs ministries,  who have the power to vote such a historic decision in New York.

 Anthony Bellanger, IFJ General Secretary
