News Photographers Association of Canada Reacts to Press Freedom Violations

News Photographers Association of Canada Reacts to Press Freedom Violations

Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, June 1, 2020 /CNW Telbec/ - Members of the News Photographers Association of Canada (NPAC) are extremely dismayed over numerous press freedom violations occurring across the United States in recent days. The organization urges law authorities in the United States to instruct their police officers and agencies not to target photojournalists and their colleagues who are doing their jobs in documenting protests.

"Photo and visual journalists, as well as their colleagues across news media, are fulfilling their mandate of documenting this horrifically difficult time in the United States history. Unfortunately, in doing so, we have seen many instances over the past several days where visual journalists have been the target of violence and unjust imprisonment," says Ryan McLeod, Vice President of NPAC. "This is unacceptable, and we join our voice to calls from many human rights as well as professional organizations from across the United States and around the world in calling for an immediate end to the targeting of members of the press corps by members of law enforcement."

About NPAC:

NPAC celebrates and champions quality and ethical photography in journalism. Through a variety of efforts, the association challenges its members to better themselves and to continually raise the bar of industry standards.

This national organization includes over 300 professional press and documentary photographers, photo editors and photojournalism students from across Canada.
