From: Darren Lewis <DLewis@tuc.org.uk>
Subject: London Region National Pensioners Convention Demo at BBC – Friday 21 June @ 12 noon
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE ASKING ALL MEMBERS TO ENSURE THAT THEY SEEK TO MAXIMISE THE ATTENDANCE FROM THEIR AFFILIATED GROUPS FOR THE DEMONSTRATION AT THE BBC OFFICES IN PORTLAND PLACE
(nearest tube Oxford Circus 5 min walk) on Friday 21 June @ 12 NOON
please see below the National Press release
The National Pensioners Convention (NPC) is calling on local pensioner groups, trade unions, community groups, students, members of the public, MPs and councillors to make a stand on Friday 21 June against:
1. The BBC’s decision to means-test the TV licence for older people
2. The Government’s decision to make the BBC pay for the concession
-which we are asking people to print out at home and stick to a piece of cardboard – so that you can take it along to the demo. Local banners and placards are of course also welcome, along with whistles, drums and other instruments.
The NPC is absolutely clear – if we fail to protect this concession, the government will begin looking at the winter fuel allowance and the bus pass. That’s why we need as big a demonstration as possible out on the street next Friday.
Thanks for your support.
Neil Duncan-Jordan (National Pensioners Convention)
