The Guyana Press Association has called for its members to boycott any even which excludes colleagues of the media.
The call was made today after the Giftland Mall released a statement informing that a Gordon Moseley and News Source [a media outlet operated by Moseley] were excluded from a planned press conference later today.
“Kindly be advised that this invitation excludes Gordon Mosely and News Source Guyana.” Giftland Mall stated in its release.
The Guyana Press Association in its statement condemned the exclusion of any media house or media worker/journalist from any event. “This exclusion is a direct attack on a media house and should be rejected out rightly by all media workers and media houses.” The GPA said in its statement.
The GPA said too that it stands by all of its media workers and recognised entries and rejects the targeting of media workers and media houses.
“GPA calls on media houses to boycott any event in which our colleagues are excluded from” the GPA statement noted.
