The Libel Reform Campaign

By Emily Butselaar / 18 December, 2012

In November 2009, after months of research and reporting on England’s anti-free speech libel laws, Index, in association with our partners, launched the Libel Reform Campaign.

Months later, as Britain prepared for a general election, over 50,000 people had written to their MPs demanding that the defamation laws be changed. All the major parties made manifesto pledges to draft a new law.

Index, with help from its supporters, kept pressure on the parties to keep their promise, and an improved libel law has been drafted and debated by parliament. This would not have been possible without the continued support from the thousands in the UK and throughout the world who care about free speech.

Every donation, no matter the size, guarantees that we who value freedom of expression will always have a voice and be a formidable advocate.


Challenge censorship. Stand up for free expression. Support Index.
