(MENAFN) Qatar's Al Jazeera has launched 'The Demand Press Freedom' campaign one year after Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the UAE launched a blockade against Qatar and called for the Doha-based network to be shut down.
As part of the campaign, the network will host a series of events and international forums to highlight the conditions of journalists arrested across the world, assaults on media organizations, and attempts to silence the press.
Mostefa Souag, Al Jazeera Media Network's acting director said: "Al Jazeera may be the one media organization which has suffered the most and has been targeted for its professional reporting."
"Our journalists have been threatened, imprisoned, tortured, and killed, our offices have been bombed, our signals have been blocked, our websites hacked, and our social media accounts taken down. We continue to support press freedom and highlight the suffering of journalists and media professionals around the world."
