Anton Hammerl Memorial

Several people have asked me about a memorial service for Anton Hammerl, the South African photo journalist who was killed in Libya and whose family was led to believe for a month by officials that he was alive and being held captive. The Johannesburg memorial is happening this Saturday with a UK one being planned for September. Details when you click on read more or on the Facebook page.
