A Los Angeles-based offshoot of the Occupy movement has planned a Friday demonstration at Fox Studios targeting Rupert Murdoch and News Corp.
The Occupy Fox Studios protest has been planned for 9 a.m. at the lot on Pico Boulevard in Los Angeles, the same day as a News Corp. shareholder meeting.
“Tell the board of News Corp. and Fox News that they need to be accountable for company actions,” says the announcement on the Occupy Los Angeles website. “Fox and News Corp. need to be held accountable for its one-sided reporting, job cuts, phone-hacking, and bad governance. A broad set of organizations demand that the entire News Corp. Board of Directors step down.”
According to Moveon.org, several organizations plan to join in the protest, including Good Jobs LA and NABET-CWA.
A Fox spokesperson said the company had no comment.
