Be it resolved : Decline in media freedom is affecting all regions at some extent and has accelerated since 2008 especially electronic and print media ; underlying negative trends in economic development just governments intensify their efforts t control media and free expression, results in unemployment and job insecurity, fostering economic development among authoritarian regimes. “there is a reason if a group of people make that sort of decision". Said First Lady Michelle Obama joined with Secretary of State John Kerry to name Woeser as one of the recipients of the 2013 International Women of Courage Award – In china . In Conclusion Because Civil society involves citizens acting collectively in public sphere to express their interest , passion and ideas ; The journalists from the Ukrainian edition of Forbes magazine Should Not Just resign simultaneously But Instead Mobilize #media groups as crucial service of pressure for democratic change just as citizens press their challenges not merely as individuals but as members of a civil society

We Believe : reselection of Civil society will help to restructure public space and mobilize all independent groups and grassroots movement ; Since the people are a source for collective good and an unstoppable power (A mastermind) rising up to assert democratic mute against narrow and civil autocracy . It is The right of every person to freedom of opinion and of expression, including to exchange and receive ideas and information through any media, regardless of frontiers as stipulated by the Mar saw declaration , http://www.community-democracies.org/index.php...
