first_imgOn this day we celebrate the World Press Freedom Day. On the 25th anniversary of the Windhoek Declaration the EU wishes to recall the principle that “the establishment, maintenance and fostering of an independent, pluralistic and free press is essential to the development and maintenance of democracy in a nation, and for economic development”.The right to freedom of opinion and expression includes freedom to seek, receive and impart information. It is a key component of democratic governance and development. People need to be fully informed to be able to form an opinion and participate in decision-making processes that affect their lives. Freedom of information also contributes to better governance as it enhances transparency in public affairs and can be used as a tool to make governments accountable for their actions, in particular when access to information results in the exposure of human rights violations or corruption practices.Ensuring access to information can serve to promote justice and reparation, in particular after periods of grave violations of human rights.The EU is committed to continue promoting and protecting freedom of opinion and expression worldwide, not only offline but also in relation to the cyberspace and other information communication technologies, as highlighted by the adoption in 2014 of the EU Human Rights Guidelines on Freedom of Expression Online and Offline. It condemns the increasing level of intimidation and violence that journalists, Human Rights Defenders, media actors and other individuals face in many countries across the world when exercising the right to freedom of opinion and expression online and offline. In addition to outright violence the EU is determined to fight against laws or practices that impose censorship, encourage self-censorship or provide legal penalties, including criminal, financial and administrative sanctions, misuse of market powers and poor economic conditions.The EU reaffirms its determination to promote and support, freedoms of opinion and expression as rights to be exercised by everyone everywhere, based on the principles of equality, non-discrimination and universality – through any media and regardless of frontiers.This is your Right!Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img

first_imgPresident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has urged the young people of Liberia, who constitute about 60 percent of the nation’s 4.5 million population, to be mindful and use their role in helping to develop Liberia as a means of setting an example for those coming after them to emulate.According to an Executive Mansion release, President Sirleaf was speaking on Tuesday, November 8, 2016, in the Ball Room of the Monrovia City Hall when she made closing remarks at a program marking the close of a two-day “National Demography Dividend Stakeholders Roundtable Meeting” aimed at finding out how the young people of Liberia can rationalize their priorities in achieving what they want to be in life.President Sirleaf said although it was widely estimated that upward of 25,000 people would die when the Ebola Virus Disease struck Liberia, and especially as casualties increased, she as well as many Liberians were, however, doubtful of the statistics. She noted that with the involvement of the young people ofLiberia, the disease was defeated in no time.“Therefore, the emphasis of this gathering should be about the young people of this country who really helped us in defeating the Ebola Virus Disease,” she pointed out. President Sirleaf also said “once the same people here today say they are ready to get involved with anything that they are called upon to do – they always do it satisfactorily.”She used the occasion to appeal to participants at the two-day stakeholders’ gathering to give all of their attention and understanding to those facilitating the gathering so that tomorrow they can take the same initiatives to ensure that their communities are kept clean.She noted that since a vast majority of those who helped the authorities in defeating the deadly Ebola Virus Disease came from the various communities in Liberia, she wants them extend the initiative to their various communities by keeping them clean, including public schools. She urged the young people to ensure that they take the initiative to partner with government in fostering and achieving the nation’s quest for national development.Also making remarks at the ceremony was the President of the Federation of Liberian Youths (FLY), Mr. Augustine Tamba. He said investing in youth development is a cardinal development that he was proud of as far as the Sirleaf administration is concerned, and noted that young people are the foundation of any nation and should be taken very seriously in the development of Liberia, as investing in them is critical. The ceremony was attended by government officials, including Youth and Sports Minister, Saah Charles N’Tow, development partners, youth leaders from across Liberia, among others.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img
