Press Freedom. Act Now.


If you care about freedom of the press and keeping the bastards honest, please take time to sign this petition. My good friend Steve Pennells faces jail for writing about Gina Rinehart, the world’s richest woman.

Gina Rinehart: Withdraw your subpoenas against Adele Ferguson and Steve Pennells #pressfreedom

Petitioning Gina Rinehart

Gina Rinehart: Withdraw your subpoenas against Adele Ferguson and Steve Pennells #pressfreedom

It’s not only Steve, but Adele Ferguson and numerous others. This kind of intimidation and bullshit must be ended.

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

I know it’s late notice but this petition is being presented in court tomorrow when Pennells will appear again to find out his fate. So please, if you want to, sign it tonight.

I can’t emphasise enough how important this is, for journalists but more importantly for society and democracy.

Thank you

Here is the petition by 30 Days of Press Freedom

And also, as a bonus round, have a video of super awesome music persons from The Herd personally supporting Pennells (which I now cannot find) and also a video of him accepting his Gold Walkley Award – the highest honour in Australian journalism.

I like gin, mittens and otters, not necessarily in that order. Here's some stuff I felt like writing down when I'm not chained to a desk writing other things for a living. Please use caution when using this site; there may be sweary words, cute animals and general bullshit. Don't say I didn't fucking warn you.
