The protesters say that the BBC is pro-Israel in its reports. For instance, they say that the company provides little coverage of Palestinian solidarity protests in the UK.
Banners branded the BBC as “British Bulls**t Corporation” and called Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu “Antichrist.”
It comes almost a week after several anti-BBC protests took place across the UK: in London, Manchester, Liverpool, and Newcastle. The demonstrators were saying that the corporation is “duty-bound” to provide unbiased coverage.
