Support Amy Goodman!
The September meeting of London Freelance Branch passed a motion that "notes that an arrest warrant has been issued in North Dakota for Democracy Now! host... Amy Goodman... charged with criminal trespassing while covering the Native American-led protests against the Dakota Access oil pipeline."
The Branch therefore resolved:
- to send a message of support to Ms Goodman and Democracy Now
- to ask the National Executive of the NUJ to do the same
- that the Branch Committee keep in touch with the situation with a view to bringing a motion to the October Branch meeting suggesting, if appropriate, it makes a donation to any defence fund that is set up.
