On the call of Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ), the journalist community across the country held protest rallies against the shrinking space for freedom of press, speech and expression in the country following fascist and dictatorial policies adopted by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.

Speakers at the protest rallies and demonstrations, arranged by 13 unions of journalists, severely criticised the PTI government, led by Prime Minster Imran Khan for adopting anti-media policies, which would be fought and defended with the power of pen by the journalist community.

At the Islamabad Press Club, a big protest rally was arranged by the Rawalpindi Union, which was attended and addressed by journalist bodies representatives, politicians, civil society members and senior journalists. They called for joining hands for defending freedom of the press in the country.
