Here’s why Australian Newspapers have Blacken their front pages


On Monday, Australian newspapers had their front page blackened and a stamp named ‘Secret’. Journalists say Australia’s National Security laws have stifled reporting and created a ‘culture of secrecy’. Australian Newspapers united as a part of the campaign against various governments for penalising whistleblowing. The campaign was started by Australia’s Right to Know Coalition after  raids on the ABC’s Sydney headquarters and the home of a News Corp journalist in June. Both are being challenged in the Australian High Court. The Australian parliament has passed more than 60 laws relating to secrecy and spying in the past 20 years. #Australia #Newspaper #Whistleblowers
