The Independent Trade Union of Journalists and Media Workers is shocked and dismayed by the today`s devious attack on the French satirical newspaper Charlie Ebdo in which 12 people were killed, including 10 journalists.
This massacre is a living proof that journalists and the freedom of thought and media are under serious threat all over the world. SSNM joins the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) in the classification of this act as a barbarous act of violence against journalist and the freedom of media. EFJ will hold a minute of silence as a sign of respect for the murdered journalists in the International Press Center tomorrow at 11:00. SSNM invites all Macedonian colleagues to take part in this tribute, wherever they are.
