Failure to report Monsanto worldwide protests

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Can you please tell me for what reasons and by whom decided that the protests against Monsanto that occurred world wide yesterday were not deemed news worthy to even get a mention on the BBC news website? This clearly matters to a lot of people and considering the recent European ban on pesticides produced by Monsanto I would feel would make it news worthy.

Can you also tell me if any political figures/departments influenced the decision not to cover this important story?

Can you provide me with details of any correspondence between Monsanto and/or any of its subsidiaries and the BBC?

Yours faithfully,

Gareth Barlow
