Free Speech is Not For Sale campaign is launched in partnership with English PEN. A report done as part of the campaign highlights the problem of so-called libel tourism and English law of defamation’s chilling effect on free speech. As a result of debate following the report’s suggestions, UK Justice Secretary Jack Straw pledges to make English defamation laws fairer.
