Flashmob outside the BBC
38 Degrees members with the 80,000 strong save the BBC petitions
Today people took to the streets across the UK calling on the BBC not to cut Asian Network, BBC6 Music and the BBC website. Flashmobs took place in London, Bristol, Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester and Glasgow, making sure that BBC bosses know how many people oppose their cuts. We’ve got photos from some of the demos below, when we get more we’ll add them in.
Over 80,000 people signed the “Save the BBC” petitions – which 38 Degrees members presented to the BBC Trust (see the photo above).
The BBC won’t announce it’s plans for another few months but one thing is clear, tens of thousands of us don’t want the BBC to cut the services we love. So what should we do now? If you have any ideas let us know in the comments below.
