Update: Thank you so much for helping us reach our original £5,000 target. This is such a crucial stage for libel reform in Northern Ireland and your continued donations will mean we can organise additional events in Belfast and reach many more people throughout the year.

The Defamation Act hasn't been extended to Northern Ireland.
This leaves the people of Northern Ireland with fewer free speech rights than other citizens in the UK. Even worse: this unexpected decision has created a loophole in the law.
We need your help to mobilise civil society in Northern Ireland to demand libel reform. The campaign already has hundreds of supporters in the province, but we need more if we want Assembly Members to take notice and sort this out. To do that we need to spend time and money on public events and campaigning materials. We're confident that the more people we reach, the more people will back reform.
