Well over 600 people gathered in Perugia in the first week of April 2022 for what some referred to as the “Davos of Journalism”, the International Journalism Festival. The festival every year brings together media outlets, media development organizations, donors, students of journalism and many others from all over the world to discuss developments in the field of journalism. This year, the situations in Ukraine and Afghanistan featured prominently on the agenda.

The Perugia Declaration for Ukraine was presented at the conference on behalf of 145 organizations and an equal number of individual signatories so far. Zamaneh Media, present at the conference, supports the declaration. The statement calls on all states and the international community to protect and support journalists and independent media in the crisis and for an end to violence against journalists:

The targeting, torturing, and killing of journalists is abhorrent and must be stopped. Those responsible must be held accountable and brought to justice under national and international law. Vicious online attacks against news organizations and individual journalists must also cease. We condemn Russia’s attacks on press freedom and freedom of expression in Ukraine in the strongest possible terms. The safety and security of all journalists to report freely are essential to ensure that the world understands the reality and facts of the ongoing war, including the humanitarian consequences.
