“We Are Not Whipping Dogs”, PUL Blasts State Security Individuals, Plans Mass Media Peaceful Protest Thursday

“The unabated flogging of our members must stop and now”, blast, the Vice President of the Press Union of Liberia Daniel Nyakonah.

After a daylong mass meeting, the highest decision making body of journalists in Liberia, the membership of the PUL unanimously agreed to stage a peaceful protest intended to rise the red flag on the continuous flogging of its members by state security personal.

Enough is Enough, we are not Flogging Dogs and this unacceptable behavior must come to an end now, noted the PUL’s VP.

Additionally, Mr. Nyakonah stressed that the union is also reviewing other options including legal ones in a bid to bring to an end the ugly practice against its members.

He said it is regrettable for harmless journalists working tirelessly and in a sacrificial manner and form for humanity to be seen differently by state personnel as beating of them during official national functions are now the order of the Day.

Daniel pointed out that even if a journalist or a reporter violates the laws or set guidelines by state security personnel they should be punish in accordance with the law but brutalizing them should not be any option, he argued.

“This act by state security individuals is uncivilized, unprofessional and un-called-for and it must end now”, Daniel indicated.

In a move to robustly discourage the continuous practice, the PUL has announced a major and massive national peaceful protest action slated for Thursday, March 12, 2020 to draw the attention of the world and other international partners against the brutal acts on its members.

According to Daniel Nyakonah, members of the PUL will Thursday morning gathered at the PUL headquarters on Clay street in central Monrovia with their blue and white attire in a peaceful march with placards and different inscriptions calling for an end to state security brutality on them in Liberia.

“We will march to the US Embassy near Monrovia and later to the European Union Delegation office in Mamba Point, ECOWAS, the national Legislature and finally to the office of the president presenting our petition calling for an immediate end to the ugly brutality practice against our members.

It can be recalled of late that some members of the Press Union of Liberia attending official journalistic functions have been repeatedly victimized by state security personnel with no prompt, neither swift intervention relative to investigation and or action taken, something that has drawn the attention of the parent body of journalists in Liberia, the PUL, nothing that it is time for immediate action to be taken to resolve the ugly practice.

Meanwhile, the Executive Protection Service as one of the State security institutions whose officers have been caught on camera flogging journalists over the period has written an apology letter to the PUL for one of their officers over-reacting against journalist while Police is said to be investigating one of the flogging incidents against one of the Union’s members.

As the investigation continues by state security personal, the PUL is unbinding in their quest to ensure that the old age ugly media security brutality practice against Liberian journalists must come to an end.

    my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her

    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know
    this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
