Community radio journalists from over thirty stations raised concerns about their security while participating in a national workshop on ‘Safety of Radio Journalist’ in Kathmandu in February. The program was organized by Association of Community Radio Broadcasters Nepal (ACORAB) with support from UNESCO. The journalists voiced their demands asking the state to provide them physical and professional security. They also stressed the need for legal and practical reforms to create a safe and peaceful working environment in media houses.
