Applaud Hong Kong for Lifting Journalist Ban

Target: Carrie Lam, Chief Executive of Hong Kong

Goal: Thank politicians in Hong Kong for lifting ban on digital media journalists.

Hong Kong has taken a major step toward increased press freedoms by lifting a ban on digital media journalists. Until now, digital media journalists were not allowed access to press conferences. Only media outlets with print sources were allowed to attend press conferences and access press releases.

Hong Kong has finally realized that online news outlets are just as valuable and important as traditional print outlets. Until now, vast amounts of people were cut off from the news. However, now the government of Hong Kong has made its current events and news more accessible.

Sign the petition and thank the government of Hong Kong for lifting its ban on digital media journalists and for increasing the accessibility of its news. This is a major step in the right direction for press freedom.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Lam,

Thank you for working with your government to open press access to digital media journalists. For too long, they had been banned from attending conferences and accessing press releases, alienating a large group of people from accessing the news that matters to them.

Now, digital media journalists will be held in the same regard as traditional media journalists. Your efforts have expanded press freedoms in your country and have made important news more accessible for all. Thank you for you actions.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
