In conversation with CBC’s Neil Macdonald on November 9, 2015
Mohamed Fahmy: “It’s a global epidemic now. Probably the worst breach of human rights and press freedoms in a generation.”
The state of press freedom in Canada and abroad, the dangers journalists face carrying out their work, the ability of journalism to make a difference—Mohamed Fahmy weighs in on these issues and more during a conversation with CBC senior correspondent Neil Macdonald.
Fahmy, the former Al Jazeera Egypt bureau chief imprisoned by the Egyptian government for more than a year, was finally released in September 2015. He was brought to Carleton University by the Canadian Committee for World Press Freedom and the School of Journalism and Communication, speaking to a packed house on November 9, 2015.
