I Want You...
The Dublin-based Sunday Tribune Northern Editor, Suzanne Breen, who is defending an action against the Police Service of Northern Ireland demanding that she hand over her newspaper internal memoranda, mobile phone and computer records and journalistic records relating to the Real IRA, has launched a petition drive to support her stand.

See bog archive for previous article.

Below is a copy of an email correspondence from Ms Breen calling for support. Please copy and distribute. Messages of support can also be sent to: suzybreen@hotmail.com


A belated thank you. I've been up to my eyes in legal meetings and trying to get petitions organised. If you could get your contacts to either sign the online NUJ petition www.ipetitions.com/petition/protectsources or join the support Suzanne Breen facebook campaign if they're facebook members.

If your friends/associates are journalists, academics etc they could sign the attached petition stating employer and position (ie editor, health correspondent, political reporter etc) and email it back to me. Anyway, a sincere thanks for your interest in this case which will have severe repercussions for journalism in the North if it goes the wrong way.

Best wishes,

Suzanne Breen.
