Truth Defence is a collective of activists, lawyers, creatives, journalists, academics and citizens concerned about the spread of misinformation online, in traditional media, and in political advertising and campaigning. We are equally concerned by the increasing use of defamation and other civil and public law procedures for politically-motivated purposes, especially in the online sphere.
We are seeking to raise funds with a view to launching various actions and projects aimed at resisting such misuse of the law, strengthening the democratic accountability of media and political institutions, and promoting a culture of honesty and integrity at the heart of public life.
Our guarantors and advisory committee members include Andrew Feinstein, Rizwana Hamid, Professor Tony Booth and Sir Geoffrey Bindman QC
