Quotes

"The families of the slain Balibo Five journalists have been denied justice for 39 years and it seems no one is prepared to stop the killers of their loved ones from getting away with murder."
"The Federation says the climate of secrecy around mass surveillance activities means that sources will be less likely to contact journalists as they cannot know when they might be monitored or how intercepted information might be used against them."
The IFJ has issued the comments as it prepares for a conference titled "Journalism in the age of mass surveillance: safeguarding journalists and their sources" in London tomorrow
"Despite repeated calls to ensure safety and security for journalists, violent attacks, threats, arrests and intimidations against journalists continue" he said in a press statement
