The NUJ journalists’ union is campaigning for the release of BBC reporter and NUJ member Alan Johnston who was kidnapped in the Gaza Strip in March.

Alan is still being held by his captors and his case has received wide support.

The NUJ has highlighted his plight at a number of events including a recent vigil in London.

To sign a petition in Alan Johnston’s support go to news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/6518185.stm
