EXCLUSIVE: New Photos Show MASSIVE Turn-Out For Veterans March

THOUSANDS OF ARMY VETERANS DEMONSTRATED OUTSIDE MAJOR BBC FACILITIES ACROSS THE UK IN A PROTEST AGAINST MEDIA BIAS OVER THE COVERAGE OF FORMER SERVICE PERSONNEL FACING PROSECUTIONS FOR THEIR TIME SERVED IN NORTHERN IRELAND. 

The protest was part of the ‘Million Veterans March’, organised by Justice for Northern Ireland Veterans, which saw former soldiers and supporters gather atBBC regional centres including Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, and Salford, Manchester.

In London, several hundred protestors gathered from 11am at Portland Place to hear speakers calling for an end to media bias regarding the persecution of soldiers. As numbers swelled the campaigners broke through an outer cordon and spilled into the paved area between Broadcasting House and the East Wing.

Police and BBC security were forced to move back to the main entrance. Several protestors on motorbikes joined the crowd, driving onto the paved area to much applause from the crowd. The crowd, many holding regimental flags, shouted ‘shame on you’ directed towards employees inside the building. The demonstration remained peaceful and there were no incidents.

Despite being held right outside the headquarters of the state broadcaster, the event received little media attention. The BBC itself reported the national protests on its website although no coverage was given on either the BBC1 lunchtime or evening news, preferring to devote considerable portions of the bulletins to Brexit negotiations and the Eurovision Song Contest.

Biking groups supporting our veterans were well-received.

The protest was one of a number in recent months which have had little or no coverage by mainstream media outlets.
