Video: Talk by Aidan White ( President of the Ethical Journalism Network) at the launch of Statewatch's Library & Archive on the value of preserving written history

At the launch of Statewatch's Library & Archive on Thursday 22 November 2018 Aidan emphasised the importance of preserving history in its original written form - which cannot be digitally manipulated into fake news and views. And to ensure accountability so that past struggles can inform the present and the future. For as Orwell wrote in 1984:

“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”
