In a letter sent to the member unions of the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) yesterday, the European group of the International Federation of Journalists calls on its affiliates to oppose the Data Retention Directive (2006/24/EC), the so-called "big brother" legislation that allows telecommunications companies to store data of all their customers' communication in Europe.

EFJ member unions can also download a sample letter to be sent to their countries' Members of European Parliament lobbying against the Data Retention Directive.
