Anti-Terror Map: The website will map the use across the country of anti-terrorism legislation which can impose prison sentences for simply photographing a police officer and whose wide-ranging draconian powers allow police to stop and search anyone even where there is no reasonable suspicion of terrorism at all.
Stop & Search Bust Card: Also featured on the site will be a ‘bust card’ for photographers – that will set out their legal right to take photographs when stopped by police or security staff.
Canary Wharf ‘Flash-mob’: The campaign calls for a National Photographers Flash-Mob of Canary Wharf on 12th September 2009 and is calling for photographers across the country to highlight spaces where photography is unreasonably restricted. The flash-mob action will highlight how heavy handed private security guards are restricting individual liberty and press freedom by preventing photographers from pursuing their hobby or their profession.
The London flash-mob will be 3pm at the Clocks, Canary Wharf, London.
“I’m a Photographer, Not a Terrorist!”
