Ossigeno celebrates Impunity Day with UNESCO on 22 October in Rome

Ossigeno will present updated figures on impunity with an international conference accredited as training course for journalists to celebrate the UN International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists (IDEI) under the title “UN sos: threatened journalists. Attackers unpunished.” on 22 October 2018 at Italian Senate (9.30-13.30)- Rome

Ossigeno has been organising in Rome Italian commemorations for IDEI since 2014, the international day that the United Nations General Assembly in 2013 proclaimed for 2 November to urge Member States to implement definite measures countering the present culture of impunity. This year as well Ossigeno has received the official UNESCO patronage. Guy Berger, Director of the UNESCO Division of Freedom of Expression and Media Development, will be our keynote speaker. Other speakers will be: Vito Crimi, Pietro Grasso, Angelo Marcello Cardani, Mario Morcellini, Nicola Marini, Alberto Spampinato, Giuseppe F. Mennella, Raffaella Della Morte, Andrea Di Pietro, Lutz Kinkel.

The conference is organised as part of the 2018 ECPMF (European Center for Press and Media Freedom) project, in partnership with the National Association of Journalists (Ordine dei giornalisti). During the event, Ossigeno will provide the audience with updated data on impunity for crimes against journalists. The event aims at raising awareness and advocate public authorities to create a public agency in charge of the monitoring on attacks to journalists and to implement safety measures to follow up on the monitoring creating a national platform running as the one operated by the Council of Europe. We will also urge the Parliament to decriminalise defamation.
