Wow – we’ve had an incredible response! Lots of newspapers are now backing our call to save Freedom of Information and stop the UK government’s ‘Orwellian’ profiling of journalists.
We all have a right to know what our government is up to: that’s why this is so important. Please support us today and we’ll keep up the pressure.
Here’s the email in case you missed it – thank you; whatever you can contribute really does make a difference.
Jason Evans was just four when his father died after receiving HIV-infected NHS blood: a scandal which cost thousands of lives.
In 2018 Jason asked, under Freedom of Information laws, to see an official report on the infected blood failures that killed his father. But the secretive Cabinet Office ‘Clearing House’ blocked its release.
This ‘Orwellian’ unit run by Michael Gove’s Cabinet Office claims to only advise on how to handle FOI requests – but we’ve exposed how they’re profiling journalists and hiding ‘sensitive’ information.
We’re not going to let this lie. More than 15,000 people have backed our call to end this; now we’re taking the government to court, piling pressure on MPs and telling more stories like Jason’s. Can you make a donation so we can keep going?
