Media Win Dale Farm Battle

The police claimed they needed the footage from organisations like the BBC and BSkyB to pursue prosecutions. So they want to use media footage, which in turn then puts journalists at risk in future protests.

Journalism is not about spying for the police or providing the evidence for them; they have their own teams for that. Further Journalists sometimes need to protect their source of information whether it be a person or tip off. #photography
