I’m a Photographer, Not a Terrorist! – A Brief History

Last night I dropped by the launch of I’m a Photographer, Not a Terrorist! – A Brief History, the pamphlet written by campaigners who have been protesting again the surveillance and harassment of photographers by the Metropolitan Police.

Using Facebook and Twitter, PHNAT has organised a series of brilliant flashmobs against the misuse of anti-terrorism powers by the police and the heavy-handed reactions of private security guards, including one at Canary Wharf, a mass gathering of photographers at Trafalgar Square and a victory celebration at Scotland Yard. The pamphlet records the development of the campaign.

A PDF version of the pamphlet can be downloaded from here or you can get one by sending a double stamped self-addressed envelope to Photographer Not a Terrorist, 308-312 Gray’s Inn Rd, London WC1X 8DP.
