Many brave journalists across the world risk their life to tell the truth. Media face political and economic pressure.
We must act to protect media freedom.
I want the EU to be leading the fight for democratic values. The #MediaFreedomAct is part of this effort.
👏Good to have at last a deal on the e-evidence, to strengthen cross-border access for criminal investigations.
Criminals use fast & cutting-edge technology to operate. We need to equip law enforcement authorities w/ 21st century methods to tackle crime.
Thank you Minister Kairys for your support for the #MediaFreedomAct and your leadership in fighting 🇷🇺 propaganda. We agreed it’s crucial to do more to ensure full implementation of current sanctions and upgrade our action.
We also need to provide information in 🇷🇺 to 🇷🇺 people.
There’s common understanding that this proposal is very important for both our democracy and single market.
@EU2022_CZ has made good progress. It paves the way for a general approach #EU2023SE

Met 🇸🇪 Minister of Culture Parisa Liljestrand ahead of #EYCS @EUCouncil.
Thank you for the support & very constructive approach on the #MediaFreedomAct; Sweden’s role as the next Presidency of the EU will be pivotal.
We also need to progress on transparency of political ads.
Thank you @PiaAhrenkilde for inviting me to speak to Heads of Representations of the @EU_Commission in the Member States. The Representations are our ears, eyes and voices on the ground.
Thank you very much for the job you are doing in these challenging times.
With the organisers of the European citizens’ initiative ‘Save Bees and Farmers,’ we discussed their objectives
🔹gradually phase out synthetic pesticides
🔹support farmers in the transition
Best way to see participatory #democracy work in practice.
Thanks to everyone at 2022 #EUAccessCity Award Ceremony for remarkable efforts to make cities more accessible!
Inspiring to see so many cities across the EU committed to facilitating daily tasks for persons with disabilities.
#Accessibility and autonomy bring benefits for all.
The times we live in, with a war in Europe, remind us of the importance of the work of media.
There is a strong link between media and fair elections, and #democracy more broadly.
Thank you for the discussion at #AJBruxelles. We need the Media Freedom Act.
We strongly condemn all forms of #ViolenceAgainstWomen & girls. We will continue to support civil society, women rights organisations and human rights defenders demanding accountability.
❗️New EU helpline for victims of violence against women – 116 016
Dnes je Black Friday a jsme ráda, že spotřebitelé jsou zase o něco více chráněni.
Česká novela zákona o ochraně spotřebitele, která implementuje ev. pravidla, která jsem navrhla, zakazuje mimo jiné
🔹zveřejňováni falešných spotřebitelských recenzí
I am concerned about the news of firing of a vast amount of staff of Twitter in Europe. If you want to effectively detect and take action against #disinformation & propaganda, this requires resources. Especially in the context of 🇷🇺 disinformation warfare.
Thank you for the discussion @EUCouncil and @europarl_en on the transparency and financing of the European political parties and foundations. We are closer to an agreement and I look forward to continue the discussion.
RT @EU2022_CZ: #TRILOGUE | 🔎 We wrap this week’s trilogues with the 3rd meeting on the European political parties and foundations. The goal is to ensure clearer rules and transparency in their financing.
It’s worrying to see a downward trend in reviewing notifications related to illegal hate speech by social media platforms.
Online hate speech is a scourge of a digital age and platforms need to live up to their commitments.

From now 🇷🇴 monitoring and reporting will continue in the context of #RuleOfLaw cycle like all the other Member States.
Since the accession, the Commission has worked with Romania under the Cooperation and Verification Mechanism #CVM to advance reforms in judiciary & fight against corruption.
I am pleased that today’s report concludes that 🇷🇴 has satisfactorily met the CVM benchmarks. (1/2)
📢We publish today a €10 million call for journalism partnerships through #CreativeEurope.
This is part of our broader efforts to help boost media pluralism.
There are plenty of women qualified for top jobs and with our new law, we will make sure that they have a real chance to get them.
Very good discussion with 🇧🇬 Minister of Culture Velislav Minekov ahead of #EYCS @EUCouncil.
We discussed the situation of media freedom and pluralism in 🇧🇬 and how the #EuropeanMediaFreedomAct can help.
Thank you for your strong support for this important European initiative.
