The Platform for the Defence of Freedom of Information (PLI), was established in November 2014 and today is a key player in the fight to preserve freedom of information in Spain.
The PLI is an independent, non-partisan and plural entity, made up of media, groups of journalists and lawyers, social and academic organizations, as well as research groups from Spanish Universities (SEE ‘Members’). The positions of the PLI, which are independent of any political ideology or partisanship, are based on the most rigorous legal analysis of each case, and follow international legal standards on freedom of expression and information.
The PLI seeks to work in partnership. For this reason, it promotes joint and coordinated campaigns with international organizations and groups for the defence of freedom of information such as the International Press Institute (IPI) or the European Center for Press and Media Freedom (to which it belongs, as the only reference partner in Spain for issues of press freedom and journalist safety), among other organizations.
