Protest against Channel 4 giving platform to convicted Holocaust denier

Issue No. 2130

Channel 4's offshoot channel More 4 is planning to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by giving a platform to the Nazi sympathiser and convicted Holocaust denier David Irving.

Irving has spent his entire miserable career peddling apologetics for Hitler in far right and fascist circles.

To present him as a hero of 'free speech' is a grotesque travesty – his entire life has been dedicated to those who would crush all human freedoms.

More 4 plans to show its 90 minute documentary, An Independent Mind, on Tuesday night. But we can stop them if enough people register their anger and disgust.

Call 0845 076 0191 to complain to Channel 4 and demand that they stop handing over airtime to Nazis and Holocaust deniers.

Unite Against Fascism has called two protests over More 4's Irving documentary, this evening and tomorrow evening.

The Royal Society of Arts is screening the documentary tonight, Monday 8 December. To protest assemble at 6pm outside 8 John Adam Street, London WC2N 6EZ (Covent Garden tube)

UAF has also called a protest outside Channel 4's headquarters on Tuesday 9 December. Assemble at 6pm outside 124 Horseferry Rd, London SW1 (nearest tube St James's Park).
