Flashpoint 2010: Mass Photography Shoot Out

First one protest about the misuse of section 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000 against photographers and then along comes a second one...

Just a week after this Saturday's Mass Gathering in Defence of Street Photography in Trafalgar Square, organised by I’m a Photographer, Not a Terrorist!, there's an announcement of another, this time it is organised by the collective that ran the former autonomous social space the rampART Creative Centre, now moved to the Lift n’ Hoist in Walworth SE17.

Flashpoint 2010 takes place on Saturday 30 January and calls on photographers to "bring still/video/digital cameras and mobile phones for a mass photography shoot-out to challenge the use of Section 44 to detain and arrest photographers shooting so called 'iconic' buildings".

Further details are sketchy but there is banner-making this Sunday at 2pm and plans for a 'Domestic Extremism' exhibition in London in February.
