Hostage Alan Johnston backs BBC canteen staff

BBC World Service journalists protested outside their London headquarters at Bush House today in support of sacked canteen staff.
The journalists included Alan Johnston who spent four months in captivity after being kidnapped in Gaza in 2007.
Members of the NUJ and broadcasting union BECTU waved plastic cutlery to demonstrate their support for the canteen workers and opposition to changes to the catering facilites at Bush House.
The union members, who boycotted the canteen today, have also launched a petition calling on the sub-contractors Aramark to re-instate the canteen workers while negotiations continue.
There is a good picture by Jonathan Warren of Alan Johnstone brandishing plastic cutlery outside Bush Houe on the NUJ website.
