This petition is to urge The Independent to address the recent article written by Ceri Radford entitled “I spent a week becoming a witch and the results were worrying.”

This article is disrespectful, discriminatory towards the witchcraft community and subsequently the wider pagan community. It is poorly researched, relying on personal assumptions and opinions. An article of this nature is not only damaging to the publication, but detrimental to a recognised spiritual and / or religious minority group.

It’s important to recognise that journalism and the media isn’t always going to present pieces that are appreciated by readers and by its nature something that can divide people. However the discrimination and dismissal of religious and / or spiritual beliefs under the guise of a book review and personal challenge is a step too far.
