PUL Unveils Latest Media Alert Report to Safeguard Journalists
(Monrovia, Liberia – October 3, 2023), The Press Union of Liberia (PUL) is pleased to announce the release of its latest Media Alert Report. This report is a crucial part of our ongoing dedication to safeguarding the rights and well-being of media practitioners in Liberia. It stands as a strong stance against impunity and demonstrates our unwavering commitment to upholding press freedom throughout our nation.
The Media Alert Report is a comprehensive document that documents a wide range of incidents faced by Liberian journalists, including attacks, threats, lawsuits, and intimidation. These incidents can be initiated by state actors, non-state entities, political supporters, and even members of the public. Additionally, the report thoroughly examines ethical lapses within the media community, recognizing the importance of self-reflection and accountability in our profession.
In the Media Alert Reports, we conduct critical analyses of the prevailing trends within the Liberian media landscape. This assessment is crucial for understanding the conditions under which journalists work, including the support provided, or lack thereof, by state actors in creating a conducive environment for the media to thrive.
This Media Alert Report is a vital aspect of the Press Union of Liberia’s mission. Covering incidents from January to the present, it continues our tradition of quarterly documentation of attacks and intimidations against journalists and media workers. Additionally, we will enhance our efforts by providing monthly updates during election periods, acknowledging the heightened vulnerability of journalists during these crucial times.
The Press Union of Liberia remains resolute in its commitment to promoting and protecting the interests of media practitioners across the nation. We call upon all stakeholders, including government authorities, civil society organizations, and the general public, to join us in our collective endeavors to ensure a vibrant and unrestricted media environment in Liberia.
