Recording History

Recording History

by

Following a series of high-profile detentions under new British
anti-terrorist legislation, including the arrest of an architectural
photographer and the stop-and-search of a BBC photographer, the group
I'm a Photographer, Not a Terrorist! is holding a mass action Saturday in London to protest the abuse of terror laws.

"Photography
is under attack. Across the country it that seems anyone with a camera
is being targeted as a potential terrorist, whether amateur or
professional, whether landscape, architectural or street photographer...We must work together now to stop this before photography becomes a part of history rather than a way of recording it."

THE LAST FIREWALL AGAINST THE LIES

Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.   Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook.  Never before has independent media been more endangered.  If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
