In three weeks, Presseurop is scheduled to close down.
Since it was launched, at the European Commission’s initiative in 2009, Presseurop has earned itself a reputation as a leading independent European Union news website.
Each day, readers can find the best of the European and international press translated into 10 languages. They can also share and comment on the articles posted. A community was thus created – a true embryo of European citizenship – allowing debate about Europe on the website’s unique multilingual discussion platform.
For the newspapers and for the journalists, intellectuals and experts – more than 1,700 to date – whose articles we have published, Presseurop is a way to reach audiences beyond their linguistic borders.
An independent review ordered by the Commission gave a glowing assessment of Presseurop and encouraged the continuation of the project. But the Commission has chosen to follow a different path – one that deprives European citizens of a precious tool enabling them to participate in the EU’s democratic life.
Please sign the petition to ask Commissioner Viviane Reding to save Presseurop!
