Greece -Protect the safety and right of journalists -December 11, 2013

The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) and the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) have condemned the latest brutal attack against a journalist by members of the Golden Dawn party, while also expressing their concern that police did not stop the incident. According to the IFJ/EFJ affiliate, the Journalists' Union of the Athens Daily Newspapers (JUADN), police were present at the meeting, but did not attempt to stop the attack. The trade unions stated that protecting journalists from such attacks is not just a matter of protecting individuals; it amounts to fortifying democracy itself.
