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. www.npcuk.org
Our group attended the protest on Friday 21 June at 12 noon outside Portland Place, London, W1A 1AA. (Nearest tube to Oxford Circus)
we protested that:
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
Bring your Local banners and placards along with whistles, drums and other instruments.
The NPC is clear – if we fail to protect this concession, the government will begin looking at the winter fuel allowance and the bus pass. Local newspaper, the Ham & High covered our June 21st protest.
