Save BBC 6 – direct action

 Here is a very interesting message I received in my hotmail account recently.  Let’s hope BBC 6 music is saved!

Dear wireless waffle

The consultation on cuts to BBC services like 6 Music and Asian Network ends in less than a month. We need to make these last few weeks count. So we’re going to put these massive billboard adverts right outside BBC buildings.

So far thousands of us chipping in has raised £13,000 to put these adverts up. That’s enough for billboard campaigns around the BBC buildings in Manchester, London, Glasgow, Cardiff and Birmingham. If we reach £20,000 by Monday, we’ll be able to reach other cities too including Edinburgh, Leeds, Bristol and Leicester, and also print thousands of flyers to distribute at concerts. Can you help by chipping in?

The more billboards we have, the more pressure we put on the BBC to protect services like Asian Network and 6 Music. Please donate now:

The billboards are going up on May 10th. BBC bosses pushing the cuts had been hoping our protest would fizzle out as the consultation drew to a close. But these billboards will make sure the pressure just keeps building. The more cities we can put them in, the more people we’ll reach and the more powerful the message we’ll send.

Together, we’re proving that the public wants to save these valued BBC services. Over 35,000 of us have signed the petition, and over 20,000 have emailed the BBC Trust. We’ve persuaded more than 300 election candidates to pledge to oppose the cuts if they’re elected. There are real signs that our pressure is starting to shift the BBC position. Now let’s make sure in these final few weeks, our protests reach a real crescendo.

Please donate now to make this campaign as powerful as possible:
