“This is our final warning to the government and media channel owners as we have suffered long enough and will not tolerate this repression anymore,” the protesting journalists said.

“Who is responsible for the financial death of media workers and their families?” they asked during the protest.

During the protest, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Zahid Khan assured the journalists that the political parties support them.
