HUNDREDS ATTENDED this anti-war rally in London last week

AROUND 700 people attended a rally in London last week called by the Campaign for Media Accuracy and Free Speech and supported by Media Workers Against the War. The rally was chaired by John Foster, general secretary of the National Union of Journalists. Speakers included journalist John Pilger and MPs Tam Dalyell, Jeremy Corbyn and Tony Benn. They called for more critical reporting of NATO's bombing and more coverage of the anti-war case.

Alice Mahon MP said, "This so called 'humanitarian war' has turned into a humanitarian disaster. If I could go and see the bloodstains in a bombed car factory, why couldn't the media? Why was the killing of children in Surdulica the fourth item on the news?"
