The Press Union of Liberia (PUL) is citing journalists to a mass meeting on Thursday, May 9 to discuss President Ellen Johnson- Sirleaf's security chief's life threatening and anti speech statement directed towards journalists on World Press Freedom Day.

According to a press release, the meeting is expected to generate a decisive and collection response to the venom released by the Director of the Executive Protection Service, Mr. Othello Warrick on the media. While urging journalists to remain stead fast in the discharge of their trade, PUL President Quaqua says the Liberian media needs some solidarity action that will send a clear message to government to end impunity against the media.

Meanwhile, the meeting will take place at the Union's headquarters on Clay Street in Monrovia, beginning at 12 noon.
