Eritrea Press Releases

eritreaThis is one of the worst countries in the world to exercise freedom of speech. Since 2001 when the government clamped down on the press, independent media are either nonexistent or barely able to operate. No private newspapers have been allowed to operate and no political organisation, other than the ruling People’s Front for Democracy and Justice, is allowed to exist.

ARTICLE 19 is working with Eritrean journalists to increase their capacity to advocate effectively and to defend the universal right to freedom of expression.
