The open letter is the latest salvo in the #fairgoFairfax campaign, which aims to overturn the decision by Fairfax Media executives to axe 125 editorial jobs in its metropolitan mastheads. This represents a quarter of the editorial workforce in its metro division and includes the bulk of specialist arts writers and editors.
