European protection for whistleblowers - petition

The European Federation of Journalists is campaigning in favor of European protection for whistleblowers. The Federation is now part of a coalition of NGOs, trade unions, MEPs which recently launched a petition calling on the European Union to initiate legislation.

The EFJ secretariat is encouraging all journalists in Europe to sign the petition and to spread the word.

As sources for investigative journalists, whistleblowers must be equally protected in every EU country.
