International - Allow the news media into the Gaza Strip!



    MONTREAL, Jan. 9 /CNW Telbec/ - Appeal by the world's media and Reporters
Without Borders to the Israeli authorities

    We, the news media of the entire world, join the international press
    freedom organisation Reporters Without Borders in urging the Israeli
    authorities to allow our reporters back into the Gaza Strip.
    In view of the scale of the military operations and the repercussion they
    are having throughout the world, we believe the Israeli government's
    decision to exclude the press from the Gaza Strip is untenable and
    dangerous.
    It is incomprehensible that Israel is preventing the press from providing
    independent coverage of events that concern us all.
    There is only one solution to this situation: while taking the necessary
    security measures, the Israeli authorities must grant immediate access to
    the Gaza Strip to the media personnel who have been sent to cover this
    conflict.
    You, international medias want to sign the appeal, please contact us at
    rsfcanada@rsf.org or 514-521-4111.
