PRCA echoes US calls for media freedom protection in Afghanistan

The Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA) has declared its support for efforts by the US media to protect journalists in Afghanistan.
 
The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Washington Post published a rare joint letter to the U.S. government this week calling on the administration to protect journalists and free speech.
 
The letter states:
 
As employers, we are looking for support for our colleagues and as journalists we’re looking for an unequivocal signal that the government will stand behind the free press.
 
PRCA Director-General Francis Ingham MPRCA commented:
 
“The tragic events in Afghanistan have highlighted the frailty of the many values we hold dear, including freedom of speech.
 
“The global PR industry stands in solidarity with the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post in calling for the protection of journalists and media freedoms in Afghanistan.
 
“Free speech is the bedrock of the ecosystem in which PR professionals and journalists operate. We must never take it for granted and will always support efforts to protect it.”
