Covering the Stop the War demo at Iraq Inquiry

The NUJ says it has been pursuing the right of journalists - photographers, in particular - to cover the planned demonstration tomorrow (Friday January 29) morning by the Stop the War Coalition at the Iraq Inquiry in London’s QE2 Centre.
In response, the Metropolitan Police have told the union that the following sites should be available:
  • One on Westminster Green (for camera crews mainly)
  • A pen for photographers on the right hand side facing the QE2
Police say that arrangements for the media will be handled by staff from the QE2 centre and photographers will need their press passes. For media inquiries about the Iraq Inquiry use this link.
