Happy World Press Freedom Day (3rd May) to my fellow bloggers, journalists, citizen journalists, reporters & photographers!
Lay the truth on the table & let your thoughts be heard.
Today, I'm wearing black with a yellow ribbon in full support of World Press Freedom Day. Are you? 🙂
Before you say anything, yes I know I look really weird with blonde streaks in my hair.
Will return with my trademark red hair shortly! 🙂
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states:
"Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression;
this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference,
and impart information and ideas through any media regardless of frontiers"
Press freedom = your freedom
and it should be uncensored!
LOL when I wished all my fellow journalism students a 'Happy World Press Freedom Day', other people misheard and thought I said "HAPPY WORLD BREASTFEEDING DAY". I laughed so hard. Haha!
Try it – say Happy World Press Freedom Day real fast, and you might hear Happy World Breastfeeding Day yourself 😛
Sorry for getting your hopes up, kid. But it's really not World BREASTFEEDING Day 🙁
That was a genuine mistake but it really cracked me up! Anyway, Happy World PRESS FREEDOM Day to all!
May we continue to advocate freedom of the press
