EUROPEAN WRITERS' OPEN LETTER

EUROPEAN WRITERS' OPEN LETTER TO THE EU AUTHORITIES (October, 22nd 2015)    Copyright spells authors' rights       Let us speak plainly: we writers do not understand the EU’s insistence on “reforming” copyright/authors’ rights in Europe.   The European Commission has chosen the wrong target in attacking authors’ rights in order to encourage the emergence of a “Digital Single Market”, when it is precisely authors’ rights that are the essential condition for creating works of literature.

The reception center to Porvoo

This petition is addressed to city's decision-makers in order to open a reception center as soon as possible for asylum-seekers coming to Finland.
