FUNCA is forwarding, commending and commenting on an invitation on behalf of  Scannews and Talk Radio News Service  to a press conference with Reporters Without Borders on “Journalists Behind Bars: The 2013 Iranian Elections and Freedom of the Press“, taking place Wednesday, February 13th at 2:00pm in the Dag Hammarskjold Library Auditorium.

FUNCA’s comment is that we’d hope to see, soon, a similar press conference on for example Saudi Arabia’s arrest of Tweeters — then on on attacks on freedom of the press and of speech at and in the UN itself.
