July 18, 2022

The Turkish Journalists’ Association (TJA) has granted the 2022 Press Freedom Award to the 16 Kurdish journalists recently arrested in Diyarbakır.
As for the Institutional Award, it has been bestowed on ‘The Resistance and Solidarity against the Censorship Act’ founded by press organizations struggling against the ‘Disinformation Act’ on the Parliamentary agenda which has been postponed to the new legislative year.  
In the statement about the awards, the TJA asserted thus:

Our award to them is also to all journalists whose practice is restrained and to all imprisoned journalists.
We present our Institutional Award to ‘Resistance and Solidarity Platform against the Censorship Act’ as a token of our gratitude for their struggle against even further censorship prepared as the Disinformation Act.”
