Amy Goodman has announced her intention to turn herself in on Monday 17 October

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:

  1. to send a message of support to Ms Goodman and Democracy Now
  2. to ask the National Executive of the NUJ to do the same
  3. 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.
