European Journalists Support the ETUC Campaign

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. In 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.
