STATEMENT FOR PUBLIC RELEASE

The International Right to Know Day, 2012

Venue: Karimjee Hall, Dar es Salaam

Time: 9am to 2:30pm

Tomorrow, Friday, Sept 28 is the International Right to Know Day and MISA Tanzania in association with Freedom of Information Coalition will hold a one day commemoration event at the Karimjee Hall in Dar es Salaam.

The aim of Right to Know Day is to raise awareness of every individual's right of access to government-held information: the right to know how elected officials are exercising power and how the tax-payers' money is being spent etc.

International Right to Know Day was established by access to information advocates from around the globe. It was first celebrated on 28 September 2003, and 2012 will see the 10th International Right to Know Day.

Freedom of Information (FOI) Coalition comprised of media-based organizations, legal and human rights organizations .

Among other things, there will be a forum on the subject matter and MISA Tanzania will launch an Access to Information Report that is normally done every year to assess the level of openness and secrecy in public institutions.

Access to Information is a Right, not a Favour. Demand your Right to Know

If you wish to participate in this event, please post your name on the comment space or drop us a message right now.

Everybody who loves freedom of expression and is eager to KNOW, you are welcome to the event.
