Bahamas Press Club acknowledges World Press Freedom Day - May 3‏ - May 3, 2016 - 12:35:49 AM

NASSAU, The Bahamas - The Bahamas Press Club joins our colleagues around the world in marking World Press Freedom Day, Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016, with the theme, “Access to Information and Fundamental Freedoms – This Is Your Right”.
