23 November – Ukrainian Journalists take a stand against Impunity
On International Day against Impunity, Ukrainian journalists will be reminding the authorities of crimes against journalists which remained unsolved and therefore unpunished.
The march will begin at 11.00 near the President’s Administration with a press conference announcing a petititon to the President as Guarantor of the Constitution and Prosecutor General.
The journalists will then march to the National Union of Journalists, while parliamentarians from the journalist community will provide the Prosecutor General’s Office with an outline of all unsolved cases. Tthere will be a roundtable from 12 to 14.00 concerning impunity and violations of journalists’ rights.
At 15.00 a group of journalists will hand a petititon against impunity to the Belarusian Embassy in support of Belarusian colleagues.
The organizers ask all journalists to show solidarity and raise the issue of impunity on 23 November with the authorities and the Ukrainian public, as their colleagues in other countries will be doing.
