Media Trade Union to Protect Journalists’ Rights

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–"Because of our professional duty–us journalists often protect the rights of workers engaged in different spheres–but nobody protects the rights of journalists," Chairman of Mass Media Trade Union Levon Azroyan told Noyan Tapan.
