Along with our friends from Global Justice Now, we were there to meet shareholders arriving for the meeting in Wembley with banners and flyers explaining the campaign.
A shareholder on the way to the AGM takes a leaflet and asks for more information about the campaign. Most shareholders we met were in agreement with us!
Then, while Global Justice Now went inside the meeting to deliver our 61,000 strong petition and speak about the harm the Daily Mail does to real people, we took our mobile billboard to M+S stores in the area:
Thanks to SumOfUs members' support and donations, we were able to take our message right to M+S’s doorstep -- directly to its shareholders and customers. It was a message M+S bosses couldn’t ignore. Straight after the AGM they met with our partners for a long and detailed discussion about the campaign.
The Daily Mail recently reached a new low. Its online columnist Katie Hopkins [should stfu...ed.] travelled to Sicily to show her support for 'Defend Europe' -- a project by far right extremists which aims to block ships rescuing refugees and migrants from drowning in the Mediterranean.[pathetic!...ed.]
Together with our partners we’ll be following up with M+S in order to keep strengthening the case for it to drop its advertising with the Daily Mail. And because of SumOfUs members it now knows just how big an issue this is.
Thank you for all you do,
Tricia, Sondhya and the team at SumOfUs
