3 May is World Press Freedom Day, and this year the UNESCO-led campaign celebrates its 20th anniversary.
The theme for 2013 is ‘Safe to speak: Securing freedom of expression in all media’, which UNESCO selected to emphasize the need for safety among journalists, combatting impunity for crimes against freedom of expression and a free, open and safe internet.
In acknowledgment of the day, we’re sharing relevant excerpts of the Press Freedom Index 2013. Prepared each year by Reporters without Borders, these rankings shows the level of freedom that journalists, media organizations and everyday citizens enjoy in 179 nations. Where does your country rank?
