All’s well that ends G8?
The good news is that the NUJ has had no direct reports of
journalists being mistreated during the protests around the
G8 meeting in Scotland in July.
The bad news is that the Freelance has received indirect
and second-hand reports. Was a crew working for BBC4 detained? Is there
a videographer from joined-up Europe still waiting to get their camera
and laptop back?
The union can't do anything unless it has firm information. If you
were there and were reporting, there's a handy
policing incident report form on this site.
