World Press Freedom Day

Journalists across the Mediterranean are facing mounting challenges in carrying out their profession due to an increasingly oppressive media environment in the region. When they do not pay with their lives after publishing brave investigative work, like Gauri Lankesh (India) and Daphne Caruana Galizia (Malta), both assassinated in 2017, women journalists are more often than not hindered by the authorities they disturb. They are threatened by Decree 54 in Tunisia, imprisoned in Turkey when addressing the Kurdish question, harassed by agro-food lobbies in France, while in Palestine , they find themselves "stuck between the occupation’s bullets and the oppression of the authorities".

When information leads to murder… the cases of Gauri Lankesh and Caruana Galizia
