NUJ general secretary Jeremy Dear and his deputy, Michelle Stanistreet, are among those who have signed a letter in the Guardian today condemning coverage in the Daily Express and Daily Mail of the Supreme Court decision to prevent the deportation of two gay asylum seekers. The letter, signed by other union leaders and MPs, says they will be protesting outside the offices of the Daily Express today. The protest is from 5pm to 6.30pm.
