Kur­dis­tan Jour­nal­ists’ Man­i­fest in the (115)th An­niver­sary of Kur­dish Jour­nal­ism

The Kurdish Globe - - NATIONAL -

Kur­dis­tan jour­nal­ists are an es­sen­tial part of build­ing pol­i­tics, bring­ing free­dom, and es­tab­lish­ing democ­racy. They are a re­lated part of re­gional ef­fort. Here, Kur­dis­tan jour­nal­ists, de­spite their work in their ma­jor, they have the na­tional du­ties. This is to deal with forth­com­ing po­lit­i­cal sit­u­a­tions. It is nec­es­sary for jour­nal­ists to in­volve them­selves in po­lit­i­cal cir­cum­stances at a great value with forth­com­ing is­sues in­ter­nally and ex­ter­nally.

Sec­ond/ Govern­ment’s du­ties

and re­lated par­ties

De­spite the huge avail­abil­i­ties and pro­cess­ing of jour­nal­ism works in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion, yet, the re­lated par­ties, po­lit­i­cal forces, so­cial forces, and re­li­gious forces will not suf­fi­cient care to jour­nal­ists. Con­versely, those above men­tioned groups will deal with jour­nal­ists ac­cord­ing to their needs. As a re­sult, cap­tur­ing, tor­tur­ing, and hit­ting jour­nal­ists will come to ac­count. This leads that jour­nal­ism be­comes a dan­ger­ous job. Thus, Kur­dis­tan’s Re­gional cam­paign for de­vel­op­ing free­dom, democ­racy, and free­dom of writ­ing will come with a ques­tion mark. There­fore, the govern­ment within other con­structions (so­cial force, re­li­gious force) should deal with jour­nal­ists carefully, so, free­dom will re­tain for Kur­dish civil­ians and democ­racy may not re­main in its silent voice and they should de­pend on it in all as­pects of life.

Three/ Ma­te­ri­al­is­tic Sup­port for Na­tional Medium Or­ga­ni­za­tions

In the 115th an­niver­sary for Kur­dish jour­nal­ism, we con­sid­ered as a chance, in the name of all jour­nal­ists and com­mu­ni­ca­tional chan­nels, we de­mand that the govern­ment ded­i­cate suit­able bud­get (from main bud­get) to medium chan­nels. This bud­get should be on a clear-cut stan­dard sys­tem. These strengthen the com­mu­ni­ca­tional unit in Kur­dis­tan. This pace will make the jour­nal­ists freer for the sake of mak­ing the re­gional du­ties more ef­fec­tive.

Forth/ Short­com­ings in Rules

The rules of print­ing num­ber (10)th, 1992 mod­i­fied and rule no. (4), 1998 syn­di­cate of Kur­dis­tan jour­nal­ism, and rule num­ber (35), in 2007 jour­nal­ists and rule no. (13) for re­tire­ment in 2001, those are all fo­cused on the free­dom of pub­lish­ing, free­dom of speech, and print­ing work, and jour­nal­ism. The last rule which was de­cided in par­lia­ment was the rule of owner’s ideas. This rule will be­came a good sup­port for the field. The syn­di­cate will thank the par­lia­ment for that. How­ever, in some scopes, yet, the pro­ject of laws in Kur­dis­tan has left a gap which should be filled in with suit­able laws, For in­stance, mod­i­fy­ing the rules in that the rule’s power may not be min­i­mized against the free­dom of writ­ing. More­over, the syn­di­cate wants that the jour­nal­is­tic ser­vices (which is avail­able in the law of syn­di­cate) may not be re­duced or de­val­ued, and should be com­ple­mented as it is in all Kur­dis­tan. Fur­ther, there should be laws for the life of jour­nal­ists for both now and the fu­ture.

And those laws should be fas-

-The law of gain­ing in­for­ma­tion and cov­er­ing news.

-The law of pub­lish­ing elec­tron­i­cally

-The law of com­mu­ni­ca­tion (ra­dios and Tele­vi­sions), some­times they face prob­lems with Fed­eral Govern­ment, and in Kur­dis­tan there are some fan­cies in giv­ing per­mis­sion for broad­cast­ing ra­dios and tele­vi­sions in their du­ties, among them the re­lated min­istries such as Cul­ture, In­ter­nal, Trans­porta­tion, and Com­munni­ca­tion).

More­over, the par­lia­ment should mod­ify the law of jour­nal­ists’ re­tire­ment in that it must cope with jour­nal­ists’ re­tire­ment. For that the syn­di­cate should take that for granted. They treat jour­nal­ists as other em­ploy­ers in other or­ga­ni­za­tions and this should be fixed by a suit­able rule.

Five/ Jour­nal­ists’ Du­ties

To date, the work of jour­nal­ism, has not dealt with as a (work). Even jour­nal­ists do not deal with it as a ‘work’ though the work it­self has is­sues with prac­ti­cal and law­ful fields.

Thus, jour­nal­ists need to take the job as a valu­able one, and be aware of its im­por­tance. So, in this man­i­fest, again, we re­mind you the ex­act points of the third meet­ing of syn­di­cate as: Kur­dis­tan Jour­nal­ists In the past, the syn­di­cate of Kur­dis­tan jour­nal­ism has tried to im­ple­ment its du­ties to Kur­dis­tan jour­nal­ists. For ex­am­ple, sup­port­ing the free­dom of jour­nal­ism, the free­dom of speech, for that the six-month-re­port of sup­port com­mit­tee for rights of jour­nal­ism and rights of jour­nal­ists in Kur­dis­tan, all threats have been recorded and they come to voice of de­cent of jour­nal­ists. Fur­ther­more, they serve jour­nal­ists daily equally, even though some­times it seems that the jour­nal­ist is not a mem­ber of syn­di­cate. On the other hand, af­ter the laws and projects and ar­rang­ing the jour­nal­ism filed in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion, there is a plan to hold a con­fer­ence to ex­change the ideas for open­ing a spe­cial court.
