The PJA Delegates' Congress

The Polish Journalists Association (PJA) delegates’ congress expresses its outrage at the content of the resolution approved by the German Journalists Association on November 5th 2017.

The Association of German Journalists publishes false opinions about the lack of press freedom and the persecution of journalists in Poland. We remind you that all mass media in our country operate on the basis of democratic law, respecting the principles of free and independent media.

Formulating untrue opinions and propagating them internationally is an abuse that destroys relations between our organizations and between our countries. The Polish Journalists Association appeals to colleagues in the German Journalists Association to use journalistic reliability in describing the situation in Poland.
