Fiji Media Association condemns Paris attacks

12:09 pm on 9 January 2015

The Fijian Media Association has condemned the horrific killing of journalists and colleagues from the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in France.

The Association says this is an attack on free speech and freedom everywhere, and it must be made very clear that violent attacks on journalists will not succeed, whatever the short term feeling of victory the perpetrators may feel.

A statement says the Association rises with their colleagues around the World to ensure that freedom will prevail.

The Fijian Media Association said the attack in Paris is a reminder to the World that if we lose talented, provocative and great journalists and cartoonists like our colleagues from Charlie Hebdo, the World will be a darker, poorer, miserable and distressingly empty place to live in.
