The European Federation of
Journalists at the eve of its Annual Meeting in Varna (Bulgaria) on 15-17 May - Managing
Change: Journalists Respond to the Media Crisis - supports the ETUC campaign
"Fight the Crisis: put the people first", which includes four European days of
action from 14 to 16 May 2009.
The EFJ and its members at national
level support the ETUC demands for a "new social deal in Europe" and a recovery strategy to end the current
recession that puts people first.
The EFJ has been monitoring the drastic changes
in the media sector and its impact on journalism and democracy.
response to this challenging environment the EFJ believes that the future of
journalism must be brought into the heart of debate at national and
international level about the key role media across Europe play in building democracy based upon stability,
social justice and fairness.
