People Power Works!

Earlier this week I wrote about how I had emailed my MP asking her to vote against Murdoch’s attempt to take full control of BSkyB, and with it, control of most of our media.

As late as Monday, our Prime Minister David Cameron was explaining how it was impossible to stop the BSkyB takeover. But then nearly 100 000 people emailed their MPs letting them know that they were not happy. On Tuesday evening, MPs from all parties came together to tell Murdoch to drop the deal. And on Wednesday afternoon, he did! We did it!

What’s next?

38 Degrees is an 800,000 strong independent people powered community. They are funded by their members and so are independent of government. You can get involved and decide what their next campaign should be by voting here.
