Devon Activists Print Own Non-censored Paper.

21.04.2003 08:48

On the eve of the invasion of Iraq, Sir Ray Tindle (owner of over 100 local newspapers) ordered the editors of his papers to censor any dissenting views about the invasion of Iraq.
In Totnes, Devon, the Editor of the Totnes Times, Gina Coles, wrote a front page article (20th march) in which she refered to Tindles demands as a 'brave move' and said she was proud to back him.

Residents of Totnes were not amused and as well as boycotting the censored papers, they produced a one-off independent paper to provide a forum for the issues being censored by the editors of newspapers owned by Tindle. On Wed 23rd, a group visited the offices of the Totnes Times.
