Ask M&S to stop funding hate
stories are creating a violent culture of hostility towards migrants and refugees.
A recent United Nations report singled out the UK’s media as
being “uniquely aggressive in its campaigns against refugees and migrants.”
The Daily Mail leads
the pack, relentlessly portraying migrants in a negative light, only ever
seeing them as a problem and never as human beings who can enrich the societies
where they relocate.
Given the rise in violent hate crime that we’ve seen in
recent months, we need to stand up to
the parts of the media that are helping legitimise racist and xenophobic
attitudes. That means challenging the Daily Mail.
Newspapers depend on
advertising revenues that come from large high-street companies – like Marks
Marks and Spencer proudly proclaims its ethical business
credentials and presents itself to the world as a socially responsible company.
So why are they associating themselves with newspapers that promote hate?
Call on M&S to
withdraw its special offers and advertising deals with the Daily Mail.
Big companies like
Lego and The Body Shop have recently announced that they will not advertise in
the Daily Mail. With your help, we can
add another big brand to the list and make sure that selling hate becomes bad
