Courage our network

About us

This site was commissioned by the trustees of Courage (formerly the Journalistic Source Protection Defence Fund), dedicated to building support for Barrett Brown and providing information on his case. We also seek to draw attention to the issues Barrett’s alleged actions have raised.

One of the tasks of the trustees is to oversee the functioning of Courage, which has been set up to raise money for journalistic sources’ legal defence campaigns. Barrett Brown is Courage’s [FIFTH] beneficiary, but he will not be its last. We expect to be supporting more journalistic sources and whistleblowers in the future and we expect to grow as more journalistic sources are nominated as recipients.
