International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists in 2018 — Film Screening: “HONDROS”
2 Nov 2018 -  Screening of Greg Campbell’s documentary film “HONDROS” (not available on Webcast) co-produced by Riva Marker and Jake Gyllenhaal about award-winning journalist photographer Chris Hondros, on the occasion of the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists. Followed by discussion with Executive Producer Riva Marker. Organized by UNESCO, the Permanent Mission of Greece, and the New York Group of Friends for the Protection of Journalists.

According to UNESCO’s statistics and reports, in the past twelve years (2006-2017) close to 1010 journalists have been killed for reporting the news and bringing information to the public. On average, this constitutes one death every four days. In nine out of ten cases the killers go unpunished. Impunity leads to more killings and is often a symptom of worsening conflict and the breakdown of law and judicial systems. Impunity damages whole societies by covering up serious human rights abuses, corruption, and crime. Governments, civil society, the media, and everyone concerned in upholding the rule of law are called to join in the global efforts to end impunity.
