Following an extraordinary session of the managing bodies, pursuant to Articles 9 and 28 of the Statute of the Organization, the Macedonian Association of Journalists (MAN) decided to hold a peaceful protest on 26 September 2019, in front of the Public Prosecutor’s Office and the courts.

MAN’s reaction comes amid mounting strong political pressure on journalists and the media, which the government is exerting through the justice system. MAN is calling on its members tomorrow at 11h to join a peaceful protest that will begin in front of the Basic Public Prosecutor’s Office on the Vardar quay and then continue to the court palaces. At the same time, we call on all journalists, media workers, members of NGOs, as well as all citizens to support media freedom through massive attendance.The motto of the protest is: Answer the journalist word with word, not with arrests and persecution !,reads MAN’s statement.
