Op 29 januari 2015 nam ik deel aan de seminar “Je suis Charlie-Media Freedom in the EU and South Eastern Europe“. De Europese Federatie voor Journalisten woonde de seminar bij, en schreef hierover het volgende:
The European Federation of Journalists attended the conference “Je suis Charlie-Media Freedom in the EU and South Eastern Europe” at the European Parliament. Hosted by Ulrike Lunacek, Vice-President of the European Parliament, in cooperation with the Italian based Osservatorio Balcani e Caucaso (OBC) the meeting discussed threats on media freedom, in particular within the context of the project “safety net for European journalists” presented by OBC.
For Kati Piri, Member of the European Parliament, S&D Group, “the biggest threats journalists are facing don’t come from religious extremists but from those who are in power. In Turkey, for example, government banned Twitter and YouTube.” She referred to a recent resolution on freedom of expression in Turkey: Recent arrests of journalists, media executives and systematic pressure against media.
