AMMAN — The Centre for Defending the Freedom of Journalists (CDFJ) said on Monday that interest in the “#Talking_is_not_a_crime” campaign increased with the support of media institutions and social media activists, a CDFJ statement said.

The campaign calls for cancelling Article 11 of the Electronic Crime Law and raising awareness of the article’s restrictions on freedom of expression and the media, since it allows suspending and detaining reporters, journalists and social media activists for what they publish.

Followers of the campaign page  on Facebook amounted to more than 10,000 people and those who interact and comment on the page’s content amount to more than 36,000, the statement said.
