It is less well known that Gandhiji's first individual satyagraha, which he began before launching the Quit India Movement in 1942, was the only satyagraha launched by him for defending press freedom, which was suppressed by the British with all their might because of the Second World War, in which India had been dragged to participate without regard to its willingness to do so.

Gandhiji wrote extensively about non-violence during that period, writings the British Government censored on the grounds that he did not have the freedom to write and reflect on non-violence when war had begun and India had 'joined' the war. Gandhiji protested against the decision and refused to submit to censorship. Therefore, just before starting the individual satyagraha he described press freedom as the foundation of Swaraj, and asked people to suffer and sacrifice for defending this foundation.

As early as 1927 Gandhi wrote, 'Is it necessary to conduct newspapers at any cost? Is the good that they do so great as to outweigh the evil that mischievous advertisements cause? We have a journalists’ association. Is it not possible through it to cultivate a uniform code of morals among them and to create a public opinion that would make it impossible for a respectable journal to violate the prescribed code?' Profound thoughts for the twenty-first century media to reflect upon.

Bulgaria goes down in the World Press Freedom Index 2018 becoming the EU member state with the least media freedom. Therefore it makes getting truthful information harder
Ane Briones has done a great research about it!

Today is international Day to End the Impunity for Crimes against Journalist.
More then 200 journalist were killed in Russia to silence the true. Since 1993, they were killed from shootout, catastrophe, terroristic act or just disappeared
The violet deaths started from Yeltsin period and still continued. Unfortunately that put Russia on the top 3 of the most dangerous countries for journalist work. People need to understand that you cannot switch off the light of true.
