BBC HQ occupied in Scotland

Via Lenin’s Tomb…

Over 100 supporters of Scottish Stop the War Coalition and Palestinian groups have occupied the BBC headquarters in Glasgow. They say they will not end their occupation until the BBC has reversed its decision not to broadcast an emergency aid appeal for Gaza. The protestors are demanding to meet with a senior representative of the BBC.
Keith Boyd, one of the protesters occupying BBC Scotland’s HQ, can be contacted on: +447912348366

And as for Mark Thompson, the BBC’s director general who refused to broadcast the appeal, it turns out he “is actually a deeply religious man. He’s a Catholic, but his wife is Jewish, and he has a far greater regard for the Israeli cause than some of his predecessors.”
