Where: BBC Broadcasting House, Portland Place, London, W1A 1AA

In September this year 60,000 people marched through the streets of Manchester in support of saving the NHS and was replaced by a televised screening of the Tory Conference. As a result the Million Mask March was organised in over 400 locations around the world with individuals wearing masks appearing in the film V for Vendetta – news channels deemed this “too small” to report and again it went un covered.  Organisers have now called for Occupy The BBC to take place this weekend in support of the blackout of mass protest that took place over the last few months and they ask for your support.
