Indonesia

In democratic countries such as Indonesia, the press acts as a custodian of the public interest and a watchdog on the actions of government. The press plays an important role in promoting development issues and giving us information that we can use to reflect upon and take further action. Thus press freedom is our freedom because the fewer restrictions that are placed on them the more access we have to the facts.
