More teachers' notes

A very worthy subject about the abolition of slavery is covered under the title of People Power.

The Icebreaker section asks: Which are the issues that you would stand up for? And goes on to suggest looking at what Newsround viewers said.

But did any viewers say they would stand up for gay rights? We don't know, of course, because Newsround discriminates against gay people and wouldn't allow messages from fair-minded people who believe in diversity and equal rights.

So if the Newsround was broadcast 200 years ago they might be censoring messages from kids who were against slavery.

Doesn't sound very much like People Power does it?
