Jacqui promises action

I met Home Secretary Jacqui Smith yesterday and gave her a graphic description of the threats faced by NUJ members targeted by neo-nazi website Redwatch. The site publishes the names and addresses of so-called 'red journalists' (basically anyone who disagrees with their fascist ideology). Since having their details published some journalists have been physically threatened or had their property attacked.

Jacqui Smith promised the government would convene a meeting with the police and the TUC and NUJ to update us on actions they have taken so far and discuss further action. About time too...
