Today marks the 7th anniversary of the single deadliest attack on the media in history. On November 23, 2009, 32 journalists were among 58 people who were brutally murdered in Maguidanao in the southern Philippines as part of a political attack.

To date, no one has been prosecuted and justice has not been served to the families of the victims.
