La Nacin Newspaper In Chile

EDM number 1779 in 2010-12, proposed by Jeremy Corbyn on 05/05/2011.
Categorised under the topics of Latin America and Press.

That this House is concerned that the Chilean government is threatening to close the printed edition of La Nacin newspaper with 600 jobs at risk; believes that La Nacin has a record of being a champion for the public interest; notes that the workers at the newspaper have had to resort to the courts to prevent sackings and to maintain pay and conditions; further believes that the right to information is a fundamental human right; and calls on the Chilean government to listen to the views of the workers and stakeholders at La Nacin and to meet the trade union National Federation of Media Workers (FENATRAMCO) as a matter of urgency to resolve this dispute.

This motion has been signed by a total of 17 MPs.
