BBC stormed in Manchester


June 2, 2010

The BBC’s offices in Manchester have been “stormed” by a group of demonstrators who were protesting against the incident involving the Israeli army and the small fleet of ships heading to Gaza.

It is estimated that around eight hundred people were marching through the city heading for the BBC regional office; it was once they arrived there when things got out of hand.

According to the BBC, the group stormed the building by breaking down the front doors, while one man made it to the roof and raised the Palestinian flag.

The demonstration had been organised by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign and the reason why the BBC had been targeted is that the group feel that the BBC News reporting of the incident was bias in the favour of Israel.

    They feel that way because it’s the truth. Also, it’s spelled “organized” .. even in the UK.

    Yes, and it’s also spelled “organised” in the UK - try using a dictionary if you’re not sure about that.
