BBC Headquarters Occupied in Scotland

Over 100 supporters of Scottish Stop the War Coalition and Palestinian groups occupied the BBC headquarters in Glasgow today demanding that the BBC reverse its decision not to broadcast an emergency aid appeal for Gaza.

The occupation lasted for five hours and gained significant media coverage. No one was arrested.

The occupation adds to the pressure the BBC is now receiving from all sides that the aid appeal be shown immediately. The BBC admits that over 11,000 people have complained already. See below for how you can send your complaint.
