Le Syndicat des Professionnels de l’Information et de la Communication du Sénégal (SYNPICS) is one of the very vibrant professional associations that brings together journalists, cameramen and technicians in the media industry in Senegal. It works to promote and protect the safety of journalists and the work of the media in Senegal. The Association also advocates for media professionalism and a conducive legal environment for media practice (through advocacy for repeal and reform of laws that are unfavorable to journalists, particularly those that criminalise press offenses).
