AFP – We don’t want words, we want action.

Journalists at Agence France Presse have called on the company to abide by its own charter and stop discriminating against staff outside of France.

The call comes in the wake of the company seeking to impose new contracts on freelance photographers in a number of countries outside of France.

The company’s Opens external link in new windowcharter says it “rejects discrimination based on race, gender, nationality, religion, sexual orientation or any other factor.”

Yet, while the company has signed a collective agreement with unions in France protecting copyright it chooses to discriminate against workers in other countries.

It’s time for AFP to live up to its fine words. #AFPwrong
