Today, the 3rd of May is World Press Freedom Day. It is also a time of unprecedented to the world’s most infectious disease COVID-19 and in the meantime of this period of a fierce war for both the world and Myanmar.
We cannot ignore the role of journalists around the world. On the other hand, role of misinformation and disinformation can even make many people suffered till their death.
It is a time of crisis in every part of the world, as journalists have to struggle day and night to keep us up with the news. However, some journalists had to face reduction, termination of employment, get arrested, and many more threats.

Due to the global pandemic, journalists are trying their best to give the public the truth news by risky their own life. PEN Myanmar pays homage to those journalists in honor of World Press Freedom Day.
