Attack on Free Press: NewsGuild of New York Statement on Myanmar Journalists Unjustly Detained


The journalists and media professionals of the NewsGuild of New York call for the immediate release of the two Reuters journalists who—for doing their jobs—have been detained in Myanmar under an outdated and unjust law. We loudly echo the journalists who are vocal in supporting Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo: Journalism is not a crime. Silencing the press is an abhorrent and an intolerable act of cowardice. We stand in solidarity with Lone and Soe Oo.

The Guild encourages everyone to follow @reuters in supporting Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo and retweet the our statement from @nyguild. #JournalismIsNotACrime
