A WEEK-LONG occupation of Rupert Murdoch’s plush new offices by central London’s Shard began yesterday, and it is expected to culminate with a “people’s trial” of the billionaire media baron.
Activists stormed the News UK HQ to present a giant arrest warrant for the right-wing media tycoon before setting up camp outside.
The occupation, which ends on Sunday, will feature a timetable of workshops, talks, protests, direct actions, music, meditations, art and theatre.
“Our timetable will be targeting the prime example of media corruption, Rupert Murdoch’s News UK,” a spokesperson for the occupation said.
“The Leveson inquiry not only revealed the callous invasion of the privacy of grieving families, through industrial-scale hacking, but equally importantly exposed the fact that Britain’s politicians have been blackmailed and bullied by these media corporations for a generation.”
One speech yesterday on “reclaiming our world from the billionaire media” highlighted the stranglehold on Britain’s media by five billionaires.
