Today we celebrate ten years since the magnificent “Mass Photo Gathering” when thousands of photographers swarmed Trafalgar Square demanding their rights organised by press freedom campaign group, I’m a Photographer, Not a Terrorist (@phnat). (more…)
Photographers rights campaign group I’m a Photographer Not a Terrorist (PHNAT) is shocked to learn the Metropolitan police were repeatedly caught attempting to use Section 14 (S14) of the Public Order Act to obstruct UKPCA press card carrying photographers and broadcast news cameras from covering arrests at the recent Extinction Rebellion protests in London.
The alarm was first raised by photographer Mark Kerrison, who was covering arrests at a peaceful lock-on protest in Oxford Circus on Saturday 20 April, in scenes not witnessed since the 2009 G20 London summit.
Campaign group I’m a Photographer Not a Terrorist (PHNAT) welcomes the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ruling on the case of a peace campaigner to have his details removed from a police Domestic Extremist database.
