  1. Here it is…I tried to translate it the best way: The situation is dark for independents Journalists in Quebec.
    Fees are too low. They laze since 30 years.
    A down of 163% considering the inflation.
    Abusive clauses increasing in our contracts: Author & Moral rights, they asked us to give up everything…
    The convergence has reduced the numbers of asylum-books creating vast Media empires.
    Given these, we have no bargaining power.
    The current conditions have a disastrous impact on information’s quality.
    Journalists have to work quickly to avoid investigations and complex subjects.
    We are all losers.
    The AJIQ want to get for independent journalists the right to a collective bargaining.
    The objective is to negotiate fair and acceptable conditions. But to succeed, the AJIQ needs you, join today. The AJIQ, unite to act !
    /Hope this helps ;)
