World Press Freedom Day, May 3, 2017
Metamorphosis congratulates the International World Press Freedom Day – May 3 to all who fight for freedom of expression and defend the human rights worldwide.
At Metamorphosis we strongly believe that Freedom of expression and freedom of the media are critical to the advancement of knowledge, economic opportunity and human potential. We remain committed to creating opportunities for access to information and contribute to the freedom to create and communicate ideas .
Even at times of greatest adversity and political witch-hunts against independent media and civil society, our experience shows that these values are worth fighting for. Our media development projects the Media Fact-Checking Service, Albanian-language news portal Portalb.mk, Meta.mk News Agency, and others confirm that informed and educated citizenry is a crucial precondition for democracy.
We stress that free and responsible media is essential in any society to ensure freedom of opinion and pluralistic expression.
