YJS calls for donation for Iraqi journalists [Archives:2003/630/Local News]

April 7 2003

In solidarity with their Iraqi counterparts and in defense of the freedom of information and due to the Anglo-American air strike on the Iraqi information complex and television facilities close to the Information Ministry in Baghdad and elsewhere, in an attempt to mute the heroic voice of the Iraqi public and media and due to a shortage in the Iraqi broadcasting equipment and supplies, the Yemeni Journalists Syndicate (YJS) opens the door for donations. These donations will be in support for the Iraqi journalists to enable them to obtain photographing and recording equipment along with recording tapes and all facilities that Iraqi Journalists might need to fulfill their professional role in the conditions of a relentless war on the Iraqi public, which has never been witnessed in history.
