Report on National Consultation on Media Freedom & Law

Date : 16/07/2014

The idea of this meeting was conceived quite some time back when the Human Rights Law Network did a series of meetings around the country on attacks on journalists 3 years ago. We found that journalists were coming under serious attack—physical assaults, threats, and so on—everywhere in the country. Many journalists have even been killed for their efforts.Journalists are languishing in jail, awaiting judgment on their cases that have been ongoing for 7, 8, or even 9 years. And when you meet the families of the journalists, you find that they are very alone.

With this context in mind, the Human Rights Law Network (HRLN) is trying to build a network of working journalists across India. Journalists have a major role to play in the proper functioning of our democratic setup. The power of the pen, therefore, must not be subsumed. It is our job as lawyers, activists, and media persons, to ensure that this does not happen.
