MU News on its way

I edited MU News today and distributed its regular mix of news and events items to over 23,000 musicians across the UK. A scheduled monthly email, on this occasion the lead story called for support for the various campaigns backing the BBC in its fight against those in power who wish to see the service downsized or broken up. In particular the Union is calling for people to contribute online via #LetItBeeb. The second story focused on the TUC Rally in Westminster on 2 November, calling for artists to contact their MP and lobby against the Trade Union Bill. In amongst the supporting stories was an item highlighting the pan-Europe campaign for a Fair Internet for performers, whilst an event item promoted the Sound of Belfast event taking place in the city on 12 and 13 November.
