Our Netzpolitik Statement

Der Journalist Jacob Appelbaum hat einen offenen Brief zur Netzpolitik-Affäre verfasst. Wir haben unterschrieben.

Wir sind der Meinung, dass die Ermittlungen gegen Netzpoltik.org falsch und haltlos sind. Sie schädigen nicht nur die Pressefreiheit, sondern auch den Ruf Deutschlands. Deswegen haben wir uns Jacob Appelbaums Aufruf zur Unterstützung eines offenen Briefs angeschlossen. Wenn ihr der selben Meinung seid solltet ihr das auch tun. Mehr Informationen findet ihr auf netzpolitik.us.

Our Netzpolitik Statement

“The investigation against Netzpolitik.org 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.org and their unknown sources.”

“Die Ermittlungen gegen die Redaktion Netzpolitik.org und ihrer
unbekannten Quellen wegen Landesverrats sind ein Angriff auf die
Pressefreiheit. Klagen wegen Landesverrats gegen Journalisten, die
lediglich ihrer für die Demokratie unverzichtbaren Arbeit nachgehen,
stellen eine Verletzung von Artikel 5 Grundgesetz dar. Wir fordern die
sofortige Einstellung der Ermittlungen gegen die Redakteure von
Netzpolitik.org und ihrer Quellen.”

“Les charges contre Netzpolitik.org et leur source inconnue pour
trahison sont une attaque contre la liberté de la presse. La poursuite
pour trahison des journalistes qui effectuent un travail essentiel pour
la démocratie est une violation du cinquième article de la constitution
allemande. Nous demandons l’arrêt des poursites contre les journalistes
de Netzpolitik.org et leurs sources.”

“La investigación en contra de Netzpolitik.org y su fuente por traición
es un ataque a la libertad de la prensa. Acusaciones de traición a la
patria hechas contra periodistas quienes estan realizando su labor
esencial es una violacion del quinto artículo de la Constitución
alemana. Exigimos que se detenga la investigación en contra de
Netzpolitik.org y su fuente desconocida.”
