Journalists against the war: 'We are reading rewritten MoD press releases'


Media Workers against the War and the Stop the War Coalition have organised a public meeting on 13 July for journalists and others who are opposed to the war in Afghanistan.

According to FT journalist David Crouch, who is one of the organisers, “the public is being mis-informed, Afghanistan is very under reported in the British press, the MOD has clamped down very strictly and what we are reading is no more than rewritten MoD press releases”.

Speakers will include photographer Guy Smallman, investigative journalist Stephen Grey and Guardian columnist Seumas Milne amongst others.

The event starts at 7pm and is taking place at the Friends Meeting House on Euston Road in London.
