BBC World Service

15th March 2009

Dear All
Received from Robert Chandler.
Best wishes
Ute

Please consider signing the following petition, created by Sergei Cristo
(a former Russian Service producer). Please also, if possible, forward
the link pasted below to as many people as possible.

This will only take a couple of minutes. In order to get an official
response, we need at least 200 signatories. All of them have to be UK
residents. We have a month.

IT WOULD ALSO, OF COURSE, BE A GREAT HELP IF YOU COULD EMAIL THIS TO YOUR
MEMBERSHIP. (I know there will be at least one protest, but I hope there
will not be others, except, perhaps from the BBC itself.)

When the French government recently decided to stop their own
Russian-language broadcasting service, 900 people signed a petition
against this. Copies were sent to every deputy in the French parliament,
and the broadcasts were reprieved!

Many thanks,

Robert
