Details

The landscape for free expression in South Africa is darkening, warns a major new report from the Campaign for Free Expression (CFE).

 

Report

Although the country has enjoyed a great deal of openness since the dawn of democracy in 1994, the report identifies a startling number of growing threats to our freedom to speak out and to enjoy an open and free media.

These include assassinations, new laws, attacks on journalists, disruption of protests by the police, growing state surveillance of citizens and the violent silencing of women and groups such as LBBTQ+ people.

The Executive Director of Campaign for Free Expression Anton Harber hosted the discussion for Free Expression. Harber was joined by specialist legal journalist Karyn Maughan, Right2Protest Project Coordinator Omhle Ntshingila, and the author of the report Alan Finlay.
