More than 500 public figures commit to the independence of Le Monde Group


TRIBUNE. Public figures ask "The World" 's owners to guarantee editorial independence by granting a right of approval for new controlling shareholders.

We, readers of The World, Telerama, International Mail or Life ; The World Group in their efforts to defend an inalienable value: the independence of the World newspaper.

We believe in the world , we pledge our support for its independence, especially at this potential turning point in its history, as industrialists are coveting and seeking to bring influence to bear on the general press, jeopardizing the model of editorial freedom and economic development exemplified by the World Group in particular. Pierre Bergé, Xavier Niel, Matthieu Pigasse, on the one hand, and the staff of The World, on the other, who then approves their acquisition of a stake in the newspaper.

Because it serves the purpose of this agreement, it will enable the Pole of Independence of the World Group, an entity made up of the World's Journalists and other staff, readers and founders, to decide in a future interest in Le Monde. In an age in which even facts are contested, the freedom and independence of the press are more important than ever.
