The film that helped the Climate protesters win a historic High Court victory

Activists win against unlawful police stop and search operation in Kingsnorth, Kent -the largest and most expensive such operation in UK history involving 26 police forces.

From the film page:

The harassment and exclusion of legal observers, the violent arrest of women refusing to be searched, the aggressive interrogation of local residents, the threatening of journalists with arrest for doing their job, the confiscation of 100s of items such as childrens' costumes and crayons, attempted dawn raids on the camp, the use of batons and CS gas against peaceful protesters, and the forced search of 1000s of people and the adding of their personal data to a secret database. This type of political policing has to stop, and the right to legitimate protest re-established.

Marc Reeves - Does Business News No Longer Make for a Good Business

Was saying all this 3 years ago, interesting to see the mainstream saying it now - but they still haven't excepted the scale of the changes. Still they base there models on advertising, were advertising is false information in the social media age and thus has much less value/income than they expect.

The University of Warwick recently hosted a debate between four leading media figures about their hopes and fears for the future of business media.

CBI Head and former Financial Times Editor Richard Lambert; BBC Media Correspondent Torin Douglas (Chair); Marc Reeves, the Editor of the Birmingham Post and David Arnott, Associate Professor of Marketing and e-business at Warwick Business School examined these issues with an audience of opinion formers and business leaders from across the Midlands.
