Stand Up for Journalism: Do You Get What you Want?

Because we refuse to accept low-quality journalism becomes the norm in the search for greater profit, members of the European Federation of Journalists, journalists’ unions and professional associations throughout Europe, are demonstrating on November 5th in their own countries for quality journalism and for decent working conditions for journalists. The real scandal that exists is the increasingly precarious situation for young freelances, job cuts, economic and politic pressures on the news rooms.  This paper outlines – seriously – the challenges of the profession. It was produced by the European Federation of Journalists, the Association of Professional Journalists (AJP) and the Flemish Association of Journalists (VVJ). Download the paper HERE
