On Tuesday 22 July activists picketed Marks & Spencer on Northumberland Street in Newcastle. The protest was called by Palestine Action Group and was against the continued support M&S gives to Zionism and Israel.
That morning the BBC website carried a headline stating ‘Israeli soldier 'missing' in Gaza’. Only when you scrolled further down the article would you then discover that 600 Palestinians were dead. For them, a missing Israeli is more important than Palestinian deaths.
On the same day as the M&S picket, Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) called a protest outside the BBC. Palestine Action Group marched from M&S to the BBC to support the protest against the racist reporting of the BBC.
