Observer SOS: NUJ launches dedicated Stand up for the Observer website


The NUJ has signalled its commitment to saving The Observer – which is currently under threat of closure – by launching a dedicated Stand up for the Observer website.

The site celebrates the history of the Observer, draws together the arguments for saving it and acts as a hub for coverage about the current threats to the paper.

In its arguments against closing the paper, the NUJ says: “Stifling an elegant voice that has kept millions informed and entertained since the Enlightenment, that has both reported on and helped drive British cultural life, and which is as relevant now as it was when it took principled stands on the American civil war, the Suez crisis and South African apartheid, seems profoundly shortsighted.”
