Hamilton Hall believes in the freedom of speech and this means the freedom to share important stories that change people views on subjects that can cause and create harm to others. If there is a news story that promotes understanding and a more peaceful way forward - be it about religion, LGBT - BLM - the NHS, - Trump / Boris or anything - then it should be easily and freely available. We will point people in the right direction to read the original piece so journalists risking their lives - and the news media who pay for these journalists and who support - should be paid and should receive the recognition they rightly deserve and should always be rewarded for their work as otherwise, none of us would be any the wiser.
