It’s been an eventful year, as always. Here at Freedom News it has been especially interesting. In March we took the decision to move Freedom News from a printed newspaper format into a fully fledged, exclusively online news website. We’d like to thank everyone who has followed us online and supported us through this period of transition for Freedom. Our final printed edition, which is still available from Freedom Bookshop and online, gave us a chance to round off another chapter in the 128 year history of the paper.
From the relentless Poor Doors demonstrations that ended with negotiations with the owner of 1 Commercial Street, to the chasing off of Westbrook Partners by the brilliant folk at the New Era Estate, and all the other achievements of 2014. It’s been in many ways a year that shows if you fight you CAN win. We’ll to be alongside our comrades in 2015 to keep up the pressure for fair working conditions, affordable housing for all and the general class warfare that rages around us every day.
As a treat we’ve got an excellent slideshow from photographer Peter Marshall, a good friend of Freedom News and someone many will recognise for his tireless coverage of demonstrations and actions across London and the country as a whole. He’s kindly supplied us with some of his favourites (and one or two favourites of Freedom’s.)
SO thank you to all our contributors, readers and supporters. Here’s to a 2015 full of victory, hope and cracking news stories.
