GPU re-echoes call for journalism without fear or favour
Banjul, May 03: Today marks the 27th edition of World Press Freedom Day (WPFD). May 3rd has been set aside by the United Nations to pay tribute to journalism and journalists who have been killed in line of duty.
The training was organized in partnership with CISU Denmark and GAMES. Both organisations are helping create structures for the GPU. With a new government the political environment is different deeming it necessary to engage new policy makers on issues that still affect journalists.
