Fans of My Chemical Romance have unveiled plans to march across London in protest against the depiction of the band in the media. The march, to be held on May 31, will begin at Hyde Park's West Pond and end outside the offices of The Daily Mail
The protest stems from the newspaper's callous attempt to shift blame to the band in the tragic suicide of 13-year old Hannah Bond. The newspaper referred to the popular emo/punk act as a "suicide cult" band, placing them in stead with previous offenders, Black Sabbath, Metallica, Nirvana and others who were blamed for suicides instead of mental health issues that are almost always at the center of suicides.
As Punknews.org mentioned earlier, people facing depression or suicidal thoughts should consider calling 1-800-SUICIDE where they can speak to a counselor.
