September 27, 2011

Freedom of Information Advocates the world over will tomorrow celebrate the Right to Know Day. The decision to mark 28 September each year  was taken by participants in an international conference held in Sofia, Bulgaria in 2002 when the Freedom of Information Advocates Network was also created. The day is used by advocated for free access to information, transparency and accountability to advocate for everyone’s right to know. SALC will support the Golden Key Awards, held by the South African Human Rights Commission to mark this day in South Africa. In this ceremony, the most transparent government department will be celebrated while the most secretive state department will be shamed by being presented with a Golden Padlock!
