UNESCO in Brazil and partners launch Manifesto in favor of press freedom

Today, May 3, on the occasion of World Press Freedom Day, UNESCO in Brazil with the partnership of national entities launch a Manifesto together. This year, as we face the COVID-19 pandemic and an “avalanche” of misinformation and fake news – what the World Health Organization called “infodemic” – the Manifesto highlights the vital importance of a free and independent press. To check the full text of the Manifesto, click here (only in Portuguese).
