London: 100,000 Protest Against UK Independence from the EU (26 March 2017)
An estimated 100,000 people marched in London on Saturday during a Unite for Europe demonstration against 'hard Brexit'. Several past and current Westminster politicians, including Liberal
Democrat leader Tim Farron and former Labour spin-doctor Alastair Campbell, took part in the protest.
However, the BBC barely touched the event.
"Am assuming the Brextremist Lie Machine bullying of the BBC means this excellent rally not being covered. #FarageNews," Campbell tweeted on the day.
An article on the channel's website was also criticized for focusing on the minute's silence for the victims of last Wednesday's terrorist attack in Westminster rather than the actual topic of the march.
"Appalling editorial. This has NOTHING to do with the attacks. We marched against Brexit," said one Facebook user.
The original headline of the article read "London attack: Victims remembered at anti-Brexit march." It was later changed to "Thousands take to streets in anti-Brexit London march."
