More than 50,000 anti-austerity protesters in London marched outside the BBC and Parliament Square but the BBC did not cover them.
Comedian Russell Brand addressed the crowd:
Austerity means keeping all the money among people who have loads of it. This is the biggest problem we face today--all other problems radiate from this toxic swindle. We can organise a fairer, more just society than they can. These demonstrations are the start.Brand said the group will hold the biggest protest in British history later this year, "Soon we will reach a size and influence where neither the BBC nor this austerity Government will be able to ignore us."
From no more austerity
