Journalists across the world continue to be harassed, threatened, tortured, jailed and killed for exercising their basic right to inform. The IFJ 3-weeks (2 november-23 November) #endimpunity campaign aimed to raise public and international institutions’ attention to these crimes and hold governments accountable for their failure to investigate.
This year’s campaign focused globally on Yemen, Mexico, the Philippines and Ukraine. IFJ regional offices also held targeted actions on additional countries (check AP web site for more information about the region).
At least 36 affiliates joined the campaign. The IFJ also received support from other Global Union Federations (GUF), including IndustriALL, International Transport Workers Federation (ITF) and the Building and Woods Workers International (BWI). The International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), Trade Union Advisory Committee (TUAC), and the TUC Global also all added their voices to the campaign.
