A Day Without News?

"Our sincere and deepest condolences go out to the Cantlie family on the loss of Paul,  John Cantlie’s father, who has passed away. Our thoughts and prayers are with them." 

  __________

February 22nd 2014, marked the one year anniversary of A Day Without News? and two years since the deaths of our colleagues Marie Colvin and Remi Ochlik in Homs, Syria. 

 

It was their deaths at the hands of the Syrian Authorities that inspired us to launch the campaign to lobby for more support for our colleagues.

We set three objectives and with your support and that of our community we have achieved a great deal in just one year.

We ask you to continue to help us raise awareness and support our goal to end impunity and bring perpetrators to justice.

Our thanks to our colleagues at CPJ and RSF
