It has been brought to the attention of the Media Workers Association of Grenada (MWAG), that newsroom reporters at the Grenada Broadcasting Network (GBN) were banned from airing reports on the industrial action taken by some members of staff on Monday, 17 September 2018.
MWAG condemns the action against the journalists and calls on the relevant authorities which include the Minister of Information to undertake a speedy investigation into the matter.
Any action to prevent journalists from doing their job must be condemned without reservation.
MWAG also calls on media workers to remain vigilant and report any incidents that are deemed obstructive in carrying out their duties.
