Conference acts to defend journalism

The NUJ's conference is over - it's been a weekend when we've faced up to the real challenges facing members and the union as a result of both the economic crisis and the structural changes hitting our industry.

It led to tough debate, inspiring speeches and the odd moment of fun, all resulting in a mass of new campaigns, policy ideas and action to defend journalists and journalism.

It has been rigorously documented by 25 student journalists
here and there's a round-up on the NUJ website and there will be more in-depth coverage in the next issue of The Journalist.

Thanks to all those who helped make the conference such a success...I'm off to lie down in a darkened room. I'll be back at work Thursday.
