The United Nations General Assembly announced that November 2 is the international day to end impunity for crimes against journalists, and the resolution urged member states to implement specific measures to counter the current culture of impunity.

This date was specifically chosen to revive the assassination of two French journalists in Mali on November 2, 2013. This resolution also urges that member states do their utmost to prevent violence against journalists and media workers, bring the perpetrators of crimes against them to justice, and to create a safe environment for their independent work and without undue interference.
