Photographers in London demo over Terror Act

Campaign group I’m a Photographer, Not a Terrorist! has invited all photographers to a mass photo gathering at 12 noon in Trafalgar Square, London, on January 23 in defence of street photography.
The planned gathering follows a series of detentions of photographers under Section 44 of the Terrorism Act including police detaining an architectural photographer in the City of London, the arrest of a press photographer covering campaigning Santas at City Airport and the stop and search of a BBC photographer at St Paul's Cathedral.
PHNAT says it feels now is the time for a mass turnout of photographers, professionals and amateurs, to stop the abuse of the terror laws.
