Macedonia's journalists to stage protests

The Association of Journalists of Macedonia (AJM) will organize protest Monday in downtown Skopje on the occasion of the World Press Freedom Day, May 3.
The protest will begin at 11:30 hrs at the AJM's premises and later the journalists will march across the streets to the city's central square "Makedonija".
The aim of the protest is to raise the voice against the bad situation that Macedonian journalism is undergoing, convictions for journalists, pressures, political influence, journalists' salaries etc.
In the media freedom report by Freedom House, Macedonia was ranked 98th in the group of partly free countries in terms of freedom of the media.
