KOSHH campaigners support the Newsquest journalists
KOSHH campaigner Colin Crilly has sent this message to Newsquest journalists in support of their recent industrial action:
On behalf of our group, I would like to wish Newsquest journalists all the very best of luck in your ongoing struggle.
It is essential that there are experienced local reporters, covering local issues, to help keep local people informed. For democracy to work, authorities, and their actions must be scrutinised, especially by those who are familiar with those issues.
We feel that this is what we have in common. Reporters and local media highlight these important news stories, and campaigning groups dissect and challenge them. Between yourselves and groups like us, the public are much more aware than they would otherwise be.In the past, Newsquest journalists, in particular at the Sutton Guardian and Wimbledon Guardian, have reported on many of the issues that we campaign on, and we are very grateful that you have done so. We hope that this will continue for many years to come, and in doing so, you will assist us in saving not only St Helier Hospital, but also the wider NHS as a whole.
Keep Our St Helier Hospital (KOSHH)
