The Safrean: July 2017

Dear Safreans,

Now more than ever we need to stand united as an organisation to support and advocate for the rights and freedoms of media freelancers in Southern Africa. SAFREA condemns the recent harassment of Business Day editor Tim Cohen and editor-at-large, Peter Bruce, and defends the recent lobbying efforts by Academic and Non-Fiction Authors in South Africa (ANFASA) and the South African Guild of Actors (SAGA) regarding concerns about the new Copyright Amendment Bill. We are in this fight together, and must support each other and our partners in strengthening our industry’s future!

Thanks to Kim Stevens and Eric Miller for our stunning newsletter photos this month. If you are a photographer and want to add your work to our growing SAFREA image library, please get in touch with our social media manager, Laura Dubber. To find out more about each freelancer, just click on their photo.Here’s to a month full of unity and growth!
