The European Coalitions for cultural diversity support the petition European filmmakers launched in order to denounce the negotiating mandate of the European Commission drafted within the framework of the forthcoming trade negotiations between Europe and the United States.
With a single voice, European filmmakers are requesting that audiovisual and cinema services be excluded from the forthcoming trade negotiations between Europe and the United States.
The French Coalition fully supports this initiative and invites anyone who is attached to cultural diversity to sign this petition now opened to all.
Link to the petition :
The thirteen European coalitions wrote to M. Barroso to ask for the European Commission to respect its commitment to defend and promote the diversity of cultural expressions made when signing the 2005 UNESCO Convention.
They urged him to obtain the exclusion of the cultural and audiovisual sector from the trade negotiations with the United States.
