"Freedom of expression is one of the fundamental pillars of our democracies and of the European Union.

The media play a crucial role in ensuring that citizens have access to ideas and information. This freedom must be preserved and reinforced wherever it is under threat. The European Commission has always been on the side of those who defend this fundamental value and there it will remain, in Europe and throughout the world."

- José Manuel Barroso, on the occasion of World Press Freedom Day, 3 May 2011.
