Student campaigners tonight staged a protest against BBC director general Mark Thompson as he gave a speech in Oxford.
The 20 protesters, many of whom were involved in last month’s occupation of Oxford University’s Clarendon Building in Broad Street, were angry at the corporation’s decision not to broadcast the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Gaza appeal.
Mr Thompson was talking about values in the media at the University Church of St Mary the Virgin in High Street.
The students collected money for the DEC appeal after the event.
