Statement on Behalf of NIPSA in Relation to Recent Threats to Journalists

“On behalf of NIPSA’s 42,000 members I wish to extend our abhorrence at yet again journalists who are doing their job are attacked by those who lurk in the shadows.
“No-one should be threatened for doing their job. Those who make these threats have no place in our society and should leave the stage,” commented the union’s General Secretary Alison Millar.

She went on to state: “NIPSA fully supports these workers as we have all workers when they have been threatened or even killed in the course of their carrying out their job.
“NIPSA has sent a message of solidarity and support and has asked the National Union of Journalists to convey this to all those affected by these cowardly threats.
“Sectarianism and all its ills has no place in our society.”
