“IF freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter,” stated George Washington, first President of United States of America, a great philosopher who lived 22nd February 1732-14th December 1799.

Having taken a critical look at the various dehumanizing conditions, abuse, torture of Commonwealth citizens in several detention centers especially in the Queen's enclave and various violations of Rule of Law principles by United Kingdom Border Agency, UKBA in contrast to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, UDHR Treaty 1948, African Charter on Human & Peoples' Rights Law, even while those detainees' appeal are still pending before some courts of competent jurisdiction; a group of journalists drawn from 54 members of the Commonwealth nations have come together for posterity sake to re-write history by ensuring voice is given to the voiceless, hope is made available to the hopeless, vision is handed out to the visionless and life is accorded the traumatized, so that justice will be seen at the end of the day to have been done by the use of the pen.

Precisely on 15th December 2015, these multiple-award wining Editors from various media outfits in Africa, Europe and United States of America expressed their rights to form a registered association in Britain called 'Union of Journalist Patriot' by relying on Article 10 of African Charter on Human & Peoples' Rights which states that: “Every Individual shall have the right to free association provided that he abides by the law.
