Don't publish the names and images of terrorists. Don't give them coverage

This petition had 12 supporters

Extremists feed off the publicity from attacks like those that took place on London Bridge and in Borough Market on Saturday 3rd June. The notoriety of being all over the papers and the internet is an incentive and helps to spread fear. What would happen if we just never mentioned the names of those who carry out these atrocities in the press? If they were never publicly acknowledged. 

We are asking the UK government to prevent future publication of any images or the names of the attackers like those in London this weekend, both in the UK press and to request that other world media do the same. The people who carried out the attacks don't deserve our attention - the victims, the emergency services and those who helped and survived do. 

Sign to send a message that these people should not be given the place in history they will get once their names are in print/online. It's time to change the conversation.
