Forum Berlin 2011

German President honouring arabic activists

We are sitting here to honour three activists who worked under very difficult conditions to help their people, and they are still working. "Human Dignity is a human right", but what happened in the last days in Egypt shows us that we are far away from this right, and also what happens since months in Syria.

Freedom of expression was one of the first victories of the Arab Spring. In Tunisia, the media are now enjoying a new sense of freedom. After years of harsh censorship, Tunisian journalists can now speak freely and do their job in far better conditions.
