The ACOS Alliance has joined 800+ journalists, media workers and organizations calling for an end to the killing of journalists in Gaza and the wider region, and for the protection of all journalists by all parties.
The past eight weeks have been the deadliest for journalists since the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) began gathering data 30 years ago. As of December 8, at least 63 journalists have been killed: 56 in Gaza, 4 in Israel, and 3 in Lebanon - an average of one per day.
Journalism plays an essential role in documenting history and serving the public interest by exposing realities too often obscured by disinformation and misinformation. Independent reporting can reveal the true costs of war.
ACOS Alliance stands with our partners and colleagues in condemning the killing of journalists and call on the international community to uphold freedom of the press and to protect the lives and safety of members of the media.
