Welcome to May’s NUJ Branch which takes on World Press Freedom Day’s theme of surveillance of journalists and threats to journalism.

  • Michelle Stanistreet on her evidence to an inquiry into SLAPPs, legal action used by the thin-skinned  rich to intimidate journalists and publishers to stop them publishing information.
  • Tim Dawson explains how journalists need to develop their tradecraft to avoid being snooped on.
  • The trauma of truth: Martin Bright says whistleblowers, vital to our democracy, will be the victims of the new espionage law.
  • An MPs’ committee chair says the government’s approach on FOI ‘is unsustainable and unacceptable in a modern democracy’.
