Registered Supporters

Registered supporters of Truth Defence will be updated and consulted regularly on the organisation's activities and invited to participate in bi-annual meetings whose purpose will be to shape the organisation's development and growth.

There are three tiers of registration (waged, unwaged and solidarity). Those who are unable to make monthly contributions can join our mailing list and engage with our activities at no cost by emailing us.

All requested changes or cancellation of subscriptions should be sent with two weeks notice via the contact form on the home page.

Advisory Committee

The organising team will also be guided by an advisory committee consisting of eminent legal, academic and media professionals and activists who will be consulted on an ad hoc basis in relation to proposed activities and actions, and invited to attend quarterly meetings. 

Objectives and Activities

The organisation has two broad objectives: to counter the spread of disinformation (loosely defined as politically-motivated falsehoods) both online and in traditional media; to expose and resist suppression of information in the public interest; and to confront the (mis)use of civil litigation for political or ideological purposes. 

 

Accordingly, the organisation's  activities fall broadly within three areas: 1) research, investigation and analysis; 2) varied forms of support for ad hoc legal campaigns and 3) creative and other media projects.
