Bectu Union joins protests against Griffin on Question Time

Bectu,the TV technician workers union has backed UAF's call for a demonstration outside broadcasting house on 22nd Oct to protest Fascist Nick Griffin appearing on Question Time.

Bectu said it would support any of its members who refused to work on the BBC1 programme, which will be transmitted on October 22.

General secretary Gerry Morrissey said: "We believe there should be no media coverage of the BNP and I have raised this issue with the director general, Mark Thompson."

He added: "He said they have been invited on to the programme because they have won elections, but we strongly disagree.

"We will be arranging a demonstration and lobby outside the Question Time studios and we will be working with anti-fascist groups to ensure there is a significant turn out."

Pull the plug Comrades!
