Declaration of support
The Nordic federation of journalists met in Brussels on the 21st of November

The meeting decided on the following declaration of support:
The Nordic Federation of Journalists supports our Icelandic colleagues in their strike and their demands for higher wages. Journalism costs money. In order to be able to offer consumers quality journalism, you need dedicated and professional journalists. The media industry in Iceland as in the other Nordic countries has undergone a structural transformation and tough economic times. However, there is a limit to how much you can save when it comes to the employees in the newsrooms. Our Icelandic colleagues are now drawing a line. They demand higher wages. We fully support their demands.
