SANEF CALLS FOR JOURNALISTS TO WEAR BLACK ARMBANDS AT COURT HEARING

The South African National Editors’ Forum (Sanef) is calling on members of the media fraternity and sympathisers to come and show support for media freedom on Thursday 6th July from 9am when the organisation’s urgent application against Black First Land First (BLF) and its founder, Mr Andile Mngxitama, will be heard at the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg. The court address is at the corner of Pritchard and Kruis Street.
Sanef calls on all journalists attending the court proceedings to wear black armbands, or come dressed in black as a sign of solidarity.
Sanef has asked the court to interdict BLF and Mngxitama from harassing, intimidating, assaulting and threatening eleven senior journalists, editors and commentators that have been targeted for their reporting on state capture.
