Join solidarity protest for NUJ members Barry McCaffrey & Trevor Birney

12 March 2019

Our colleagues and investigative journalists Barry McCaffrey and Trevor Birney are due back in court on Wednesday 20 March having been arrested on 31 August 2018 by detectives from Durham Constabulary and collaboration with the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI).

Their documentary, No Stone Unturned, is an examination of the six unsolved murders in an attack at Loughinisland, Co Down, Northern Ireland in 1994 and the film is an outstanding example of public interest journalism. The documentary raises serious questions about the police investigation into the attack.

There has been widespread international support for the NUJ solidarity campaign and Trevor and Barry are very grateful for all the support offered by NUJ members so far.

The NUJ and Amnesty International have organised a joint solidarity protest outside the court at 9.30 on Wednesday.

Join the protest in Belfast if you can and help to promote this event and the global campaign.

Date: Wednesday 20 March
Time: 9.30
Venue: Royal Courts of Justice, Chichester Street, Belfast BT1 3JY
