PDF File Size: 18 KB | Download   
The education of the youngest members of society to the full public engagement of citizens with their political leadership, access to information empowers each one of us to transform our lives and our communities.just as water is essential for life to grow knowledge sustains our capacity to imagine and to change. When information flows freely, people are equipped with tools to take control of their lives. When the flow of information is hindered whether for political or technological reasons our capacity to function stunted. the universal Declaration of Human Rights declared in article 19 that the right of everyone to freedom of opinion and expression includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers. as the rapid pace of globalization has strengthened the development of a free, pluralistic independent and professional media, the significance of this right has never been more evident. technological advances have promoted media and information literacy as right for all to access equally.independent media is one of the foundations of peace and democracy. attacks on freedom of press are attacks against international law, against humanity, against freedom itself.
