I’m off to the NUJ Annual Delegate Meeting tomorrow, on behalf of Calderdale NUJ Branch. Times are tough for journalists and the NUJ, as for other working people and trade unions. It’s important to stick together, stand up for our rights as citizens, workers and human beings – as well as the environment’s rights – and figure out how to effectively resist this oppressive, unjust government.
It’ll be interesting to see if there are many other hyperlocal online journalists there, as well as traditional reporters. I’ll be looking out for people who write about environmental, climate and social justice stories too.
