I have written before about Slovenia, which seems to be the Denmark of Southern Europe: refreshingly anti-PC, non-Multicultural, and resistant to Islamization. Slovenia’s collective behavior has caused it to be reprimanded by the European Union for being insufficiently sensitive to designated victim groups, such as Muslims.
Slovenia is about to assume the rotating presidency of the EU, and Slovenian journalists are acting like their cousins to the north: they’re protesting against the attempt by the mandarins of Brussels to squelch free speech.
According to ANSAmed:
EU: Slovenian Journalists Sign Open Anti-Censorship Letter
Nearly 600 Slovenian journalists signed an open letter against censorship and political pressure, which was sent at the end of 2007 to more than 300 government leaders in the European Union, international organisations and newspapers, among others, on the eve of Slovenia’s assumption of the EU rotating presidency. In the open letter, the 571 signatories refer to the petition signed last autumn and presented on October 16 to Slovenia’s National Assembly. The signatories of the open letter point out that three months since the petition was tabled nothing has been done in order to verify the accusations made in the document against political interference with the media. “The EU is presided by a country, in which 571 signatories have launched an alarm against censorship and political pressure, but the government and Parliament of which reject any dialogue with the journalists,” the open letter reads.
By the way — I wanted to include a translation of Lionheart’s text into Slovenian for my earlier post, but the email address for my sole Slovenian contact no longer works. Slovenc, if you’re reading this: send your new address to email@example.com!
