BBC Protest - Message from York Palestine Solidarity Campaign

Hello and Solidarity Greetings from York!

York Palestine Solidarity Campaign are hastily organising a protest at the regional offices of the BBC in Leeds, the ones by the Bus station, and we'd love to see some of you there. Send a speaker, bring fliers and if you've still occupying, invite people back afterwards. See you Wednesday...

Rally outside the BBC in Leeds
The BBC must show the Gaza Emergency Appeal!

5 to 7pm Wednesday 28th January

Outside BBC Broadcasting Centre
2 St. Peters Sq, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS9 8AH?
Opposite Leeds Bus Station

The BBC is refusing to show an appeal for Gaza because it claims this would infringe upon its neutral position. This is unprecedented and this is in no way a “neutral” move. Please join us at the BBC's regional offices in Leeds to make this message clear: the decision is unacceptable, and the appeal must be shown!

The protest is timed to coincide with final preparations for, and the live filming of, Look North. BBC staff who support our cause are more than welcome to join us in our protest.

Supported by York Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Officers of University of Bradford Union.
