Keith Boyd, from the Stop the War Coalition, said they demanded ;
1.The DEC Gaza humanitarian relief appeal to be broadcast on the BBC.
2. The director(s) who made the decision not to show it to resign.
3. The BBC to show news coverage of the protest to show the depth of feeling their decision has provoked."
By last night the BBC said they received "approximately" 1,000 phone complaints and 10,000 by e-mail on the issue.
Douglas Alexander, the International Development Secretary, and Alex Salmond, the First Minister, said the BBC should reconsider their decision.
Director General of the BBC Mark Thompson (AKA Mr Jane Blumberg), evidently under instruction from the Metropolitan Zionist / Israeli cabal , made it clear he did not intend to back down. He maintains the polite but absurd fiction that broadcasting the appeal might endanger the BBC's impartiality on the ground in the Middle East. The BBC also claim there was no guarantee that all the money raised would reach those in genuine need.
Sir Michael Lyons, the chairman of the BBC Trust since May 2007 has written to DG Mark Thompson, defending Mr Thompson's right not to broadcast the appeal.
Sir David Agius, married to Katherine (born 1949), daughter of Edmund de Rothschild is also a Director of the BBC Trustees.
