Mis à jour le 6 octobre 2013 par Michel PuechLogo ADWN


On February 22nd 2013, the one year anniversary of the deaths of legendary correspondent Marie Colvin and photojournalist Remi Ochlik, we will launch the

A Day Without News? Campaign. (

The web site will go live and invite people to add their names to the growing list of supporters of the initiative.



Through social media and support from colleagues in the media, we aim to spread the campaign virally to as many people as possible to raise awareness of the issues.

Over the course of the next 12 months, we will continue to meet with multiple governments who have shown interest and support for the campaign, to push policy and diplomacy to fight against impunity and to partner with educational institutions and NGO’s to identify, investigate and ultimately prosecute cases where journalists and media personnel have been targeted and killed.

Our goal is to see the successful prosecution of perpetrators of war crimes against journalists and to increase public awareness – and support from within the media community – for those organizations that are dedicated to this issue.
