The Noble Citizens Award To Harry Fear for Services to True and brave Journalism
We want the creation of the Noble Citizen's award to individuals who, with their tenacity and bravery, have made an outstanding contribution to services in the field of Journalism in times of crisis, delivering honest, reliable and most important, truthful accounts of the situation from the place where news are generated, either war zones, locations affected by human or natural disasters or where the misery and anguish of local people are the concern of the public opinion at large. The work of these extremely fearless journalists can dramatically change the perception of a situation of crisis anywhere in the World by providing us with updated, in-situ information using the social media networks as a platform for news coverage of what is actually happening at the time of reporting. We believe this technology has revolutionised the way we see the world. For good or for evil and whether we like it or not, humankind has felt it is part of the process and is witness of situation unfolding. Harry Fear has shown a remarkable example of integrity and bravery in his field by reporting day and night, using conventional social media networks and video links to keep the public engaged with honest and reliable news of the events in Gaza since the escalation mounted this November 2012.
