Here’s a video (via 1854.eu of the protest held on Monday, Feb 16th by photographers, professional and amateur alike, against the Counter Terrorism Act, part of which makes it illegal to elicit information about a police officer or member of the armed forces. Our fear is that with this law Police will be able to further criminalised photographers and make it harder for journalists to hold the state to account.
Make no mistake about this. We’ve been living in a police state for a while now. We need to put that right.
