European Greens: A letter by European political parties addressed to Facebook

The 18th of April, European political parties have sent a co-signed letter to Facebook on new advertising rules.

As, since 15 April 2019, Facebook has put in place new rules for political advertisement in all EU Member States. Effectively, paid political content will only be allowed in the country where
the ad buyer is based in. These rules create an unprecedented barrier for European political organisations and political parties.

Under the new rules, European political parties, established under EU law, and based on Article 10 of the Treaty on the European Union (TEU), cannot advertise in all EU Member States anymore, but basically only in Belgium.

Please find the full letter here.
