A 2002 Glasgow University Media Group report found that television broadcasters were six times as likely to present Israeli attacks as “retaliating” or in some way hitting back as Palestinian attacks. This caused many viewers to believe that the Palestinians were to blame for the conflict. (Greg Philo and Mike Berry, ‘Bad News from Israel‘;

The Cottage of Content Occupied Social Centre is reclaimed!

09-07-2006 14:06

valuable community resource to be auctioned by birmingham city council
A boarded up Community Centre in Sparkbrook, Birmingham, called the 'Cottage of Content' has just been occupied for use as a Social Centre. The Community Centre, which includes a garden and a large hall, was closed by Birmingham City Council back in May 2005. It has since been boarded up and left to rot whilst local people have lost a valuable community resource.

The 'Cottage of Content' was used by the local community for social events, a youth club, english lessons for Asylum Seekers, Adult Education and a Yemeni Cultural Centre. Without any consultation with the local community, Birmingham City Council are planning to auction the property off on July 19th for 'commercial use'. They also claim it has 'development potential'.

The occupation of the property, which has been enthusiastically received by local people, seeks to prevent this happening and aims to return the Cottage of Content to community use.
