Media Center for Journalist Safety

On Sept. 14, 2020, six media associations unveiled the Media Center for Journalist Safety, a joint effort to promote safety for Thai and foreign correspondents covering the demonstration on Sept. 19, 2020. The founding organizations include the National Press Council of Thailand, the News Broadcasting Council of Thailand, the Thai Journalists Association, the Thai Broadcast Journalists Association, the Society of Online News Providers, and the National Union of Journalists. The Center will work closely with the protest leaders and relevant authorities to ensure that reporters covering the rally will not face any obstacles or discrimination. To help distinguish journalists throughout the protest, the Center will also provide reporters in the field with media identification armbands. Details for registration will be available soon.
