Douglas Coker from Enfield Green Party who joined us on today’s demonstration:
“Enfield really does need a vibrant local press. We need well researched news stories, we need proper coverage of the decisions our council are making, we needs news about local events and community activities.
This takes time and input from qualified journalists and other staff. These staff should have decent working conditions and not be under constant pressure with an unrealistic workload.
We support the journalists who are taking strike action and wish them well in their campaign. We call on Tindle Newspapers to maintain appropriate staffing levels to ensure a weekly newspaper worth reading.
