Democracy without journalists: the crisis in local news

HOW'S THAT WORK, then? Democracy without journalists? Union members are particularly welcome to an event on St Patrick’s Day (17 March) in (oh the irony) the Thatcher Room, Portcullis House, Bridge Street, London SW1 (map)

The organisers aim to highlight the importance of robust news coverage for local democracy and propose concrete steps to halt its decline. Attendance is free but places are limited. Please contact Joanna Redden ( to reserve a place. The event is hosted by the NUJ, the Centre for the Study of Global Media and Democracy, and Goldsmiths University of London.
