La Poste Tunisienne has released a postage stamp on the occasion of the celebration of the World Press Freedom Day. This Day exists to emphasize the importance of Press, the role it plays in serving people, enlighten them aware about the equality between people without discrimination, exclusion or marginalization.
World Press Freedom Day was established in 1993 by the UN General Assembly. This reflected its confidence in one of the basic constituents of human rights clearly specified in Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: "everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; that this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers. Communication is a fundamental social process, a basic human need and the foundation of all social organization."
