Last night at the December 2016 monthly meeting, NUJ Brussels voted to make a sizeable donation, namely €1,000, to support for the Turkish journalists. Some in the branch were a bit wary of donating such a large proportion of the branch financial reserve, but it was felt that the situation for Turkish journalists is now so dire, and the prognosis for freedom of expression in Turkey so bad, that the size of donation was justified.
We will be making the donation using the services of the IFJ.
