We are writing to you because there is a grave threat to the freedom of the
press in Europe. The investigation into
Netzpolitik is serious and requires
a public statement from prominent members of the working press. The following
statement is what we believe is reasonable and concise:
"The investigation against Netzpolitik for treason and their unknown sources
is an attack against the free press. Charges of treason against journalists
performing their essential work is a violation of the fifth article of the
German constitution. We demand an end to the investigation into Netzpolitik
and their unknown sources."
We would like your signature and any affiliation on this simple statement
- will you sign it?
If you have a suggestion for other journalists, editors or related workers
who might also be interested in signing this statement as well, we'd love
to hear the best way to contact them.
Additionally, it would be wonderful to publish this in English and German
in as many media outlets as possible. Would you be willing to publish it
anywhere once we've finished collecting signatures?
Marie Gutbub and Jacob Appelbaum
