#SolidarnostiOvdeSada (SolidarityHereNow) Journalism stories (1): FEAR (VIDEO)

March 12, 2019

Courageous, critical, responsible journalism has been declining for years, attacked from all sides – by the authorities, tycoons and criminals. Journalists are threatened on a daily basis, humiliated and insulted, and when that’s not enough they’re beaten or their homes are burned to the ground.

These are the stories of local media journalists who, despite everything, continue to struggle for their profession, for their dignity, but also for citizens to be informed about everything that’s of importance to their lives.

Verica Marinčić, from Inđija, is one such journalist. Attacked and insulted in the most despicable ways, she continues to write about that which the local government wants to hide. In order to survive, she works at a news-stand kiosk.
