What’s coming up next month:

The month of November marks IFEX's annual campaign to end impunity. Corruption, threats, attacks, and a failure to seek justice for those who are penalized for speaking out, perpetuate a culture of impunity. Please join us in this important campaign and stand up for free expression. Visit daytoendimpunity.org to learn more and find out how you can take action to end impunity.

  • November 2: The day marks the UN's first annual International Day to End Impunity for Crimes Against Journalists.
  • November 6, 1:00-2:00pm: Join us online for The Chill in Canada's Climate Science: A CJFE Live Chat as we talk with Toronto Star journalist Raveena Aulakh and Dr. Thomas Duck about the difficulties of talking about climate science in Canada.
  • November 15: Deadline for entries to The Dalton Camp Award 2015.
  • November 23: The day marks the fifth anniversary since the Ampatuan Massacre in the Philippines, the most deadly attack on the media in recent history.
  • November 27, 7:00pm: Join us in Ottawa for the launch of Threatening Democracy: SLAPPs and the Judicial Repression of Political Discourse, a new book by Normand Landry.
  • We will be announcing our Vox Libera award winner, to be honoured at the 2014 Gala

Thank you for your continued support for CJFE and stay tuned for more updates and announcements!
