Against Arrest of Journalists

Against Arrest of Journalists

The following are extracts from a resolution adopted at a meeting organised by the Young Journalists League at the Press Club of India on February 11, 2008:

We, the undersigned, condemn the arrest and persecution of journalists, in the name of cracking down on the “Left Wing Extremists” or for their expose of scams or other corrupt practices, the ban imposed on People’s March, as well as the sale of literature considered “unlawful” or proscribed by the authorities. We consider all these as placing curbs on our freedom of expression and an attack on our right to dissent.
