Is 24 Too Many?

Can you imagine, 24 NGOs engaged in media freedom?

In the Palestinian Authority-controlled [occupied?] territories?

The Palestinian civil society coalition condemned the PA arrest campaign against journalists in West Bank...The coalition, which includes twenty-four Foundations and NGOs concerned with media freedom and the rights of journalists and freedom of expression, said...Palestinian journalist Day is an opportunity to emphasize the need to defend journalists and freedom, and to protect them from abuses and violations.
The Coalition stressed on the need to “pursue those who attack journalists, especially those who were behind the killing of journalists, calling for the urgent need to develop the Palestinian legislation according to the international conventions and laws that protect freedom of expression...

Wow.  24?

So many?
