BBC decision not to screen Gaza appeal wrong

26 January, 2009 - by Martina Anderson MEP

Sinn Féin MEP Bairbre de Brún has said that the BBC decision not to screen a fundraising appeal of behalf of people suffering in Gaza is wrong.

Ms de Brún said:

"The decision not to screen an appeal on behalf of charities working to address the humanitarian crisis facing people living in Gaza is wrong.

"Whatever justification the BBC have tried to present there can be no justification whatsoever for standing by while thousands of families face humanitarian disaster.

"Given the public outcry the BBC should not be afraid to reverse its decision. It is not to late for the BBC to do the right thing." ENDS
