Calls by reporters for “blank” newspapers

In protest of latest constitutional declaration

Freedom of Expression Defense Committee called on newspapers to issue blank papers on Tuesday in protest against the latest constitutional declaration issued by President Mohamed Morsy a week ago, reported Ahram Thursday night.

TV channels are expected to stop their broadcasting all day on Wednesday .

The committee, headed by renowned writer, Bahaa Taher, called for this escalation in protest of the current status of the media in the current constitutional draft as well, viewed by many as repressive of the freedoms of the press.

The Press Syndicate in its annual meeting last Sunday threatened a general strike and decided to join the Tahrir sit-in protesting the latest decree after withdrawing its representative from the constituent assembly.
