Right now in Zagreb, researchers, journalists and policy-makers from Croatia and beyond are meeting to discuss Digital Freedom of Expression, and the challenges faced by public media services and non-profit media. (Agenda in Word / PDF.)

Here’s the video message Rebecca Mackinnon sent to conference participants, as she couldn’t be there in person. In it, she urges the news media and journalists to place internet freedom on a par with press freedom – without a free and open internet, she argues, press freedom will face ever more severe threats.
