Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

On 24 April 2021, 30,000 plus people took part in a protest in London relating to the Covid lockdowns.

The event was not reported on any BBC news media.

Who took the decision to not report the event and suppress what is happening in the UK? Was the decision taken by BBC news editors or was there a request from the British Government to not report the event.

Yours faithfully,

Jon Baylis
