The Capitalist Bloc speaks

Image for illustration, not today’s schedule

I am a individual occupier who does not speak for the a camp.

Dear Sir/Madam

I’d like to point out that the BBC’s constant labelling of the Occupy Movement as ‘anti capitalist protesters’ is inaccurate. I support the movement 100% but along with a huge amount of other supporters, I am not against capitalism , just very aware that it needs huge structural changes.

I feel that your labelling of protesters in such a way paints a picture of trouble makers rather than people from all walks of life who are trying to come up with new ways to improve the economy, environment, health care, education and democracy for all, unlike the true trouble-making corporations, banks and governments who are doing the opposite.

I’ve had huge respect for the BBC for all of my 33 years and always considered it the most balanced and trustworthy media source in the world. So it brings me great sadness that an occasion has arisen which has prompted me to send a complaint. I sincerely hope this phase is just a glitch and not a sign of things to come.

Yours sincerely

Daniel Bromley

  1. That hits the nail on the head well. Occupy is a broad collection of views, but mainstream media including the BBC is trying to tarnish it with the anti-capitalist stereotype which they are hoping the majority of the public will pick up on. To keep the movement a broad coalition where differing views are respected and listened to is vital. That makes the movement very powerful indeed. Just keep engaging the public and informing everyone as much as possible. Knowledge is power of course! Keep at it. Right behind you in my armchair (sorry 2 small kids means I’m restricted to it!)!

  2. I trusted the BBC too, until they participated in New Labours attack on our community (home education) with one sided reporting. It’s quite an eye opener when they do something like this to your own group.
    Judging by my experience, they will ignore your complaint, save for an autorespond type email.
