Gerry Carson, Belfast and District branch secretary explains:
“Since the start of this year journalists, photographers and camera operators have, in the course of carrying out their work, been subjected to verbal and physical abuse, been threatened, harassed and suffered serious injury.
"Now, in the light of the 'flag protests', the forthcoming 'marching season' and 'G8', to help better inform individuals, management and owners about self-protection and how best to perform risk assessment, our Branch has organised a special Seminar on Wednesday 5 June in the Linenhall Library, Belfast."
Séamus Dooley, Irish Secretary said:
"It is fitting that as the World Congress of the IFJ discusses global threats in Belfast our colleagues will be offering practical assistance based on experience of conflict."
Free to all bone fide journalists, photographers, camera operators, management and owner representatives.
