ETHIO-DUTCH Journalists International Conference-2006

"Throughout the world, 3 May serves as an occasion to inform the public of violations of the right to freedom of expression and as a reminder that many journalists brave death or jail to bring people their daily news. The main theme of World Press Freedom Day 2006 is the correlation between media freedom and the eradication of poverty." - UN.Org

EthiopianPolitics received the following press release pertaining to an event sponsored by: the Foundation for Ethiopian Information and Documentation in the Netherlands (FEIDIN), the Dutch Journalists Union (NVJ) and PRESS NOW. “The conference, in the process of its deliberation, is expected to seek and propose an Independent Alternative Media, to serve in place of the state-silenced Independent Press in Ethiopia.”

Event will be held June 10 – 11, 2006, at the Center for politics and culture building, De Balie, Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
