Purity and danger

8 May 2005
We at openDemocracy have been trying to encourage those who campaign on climate change to look at the debate between activists that we published last week here. An individual from one group is ready to continue the discussion started by the four activists, but refuses to post a link to openDemocracy's climate debate from the web site of his or her own organisation because he or she objects to "favourable things said about BP on the openDemocracy site".

Sign the petition: save our Freedom of Information

The UK government is running a secretive unit inside Michael Gove’s Cabinet Office that’s accused of ‘blacklisting’ journalists and hiding ‘sensitive’ information from the public. Experts say they’re breaking the law – and it’s an assault on our right to know what our government is doing.

We’re not going to let it stand. We’re launching a legal battle – but we also need a huge public outcry, showing that thousands back our call for transparency. Will you add your name?
