Saturday 21 June 2014: 50,000 people marched through London to protest against austerity and the ruling coalition government.
The BBC was heavily criticised for not covering the largest anti-government demonstration for several years. It did however start coverage from 8pm that evening, but not before a deluge of social media condemnation of the publicly funded institution from across the globe.
Placards and banners highlighted a myriad of issues from tax avoidance and evasion to the bedroom tax and welfare cuts, education and NHS privatisation to calls for an end to the funding off the Trident nuclear weapons program.

In February 2010 hundreds of people marched on the Whittington Hospital in Archway, North London, against the planned closure of the Accident and Emergency department. MP Jeremy Corbyn warned of further cuts and complete hospital closures. Now, three years later the Whittington faces further cuts to its services. Simply documenting this first protest back then exposes the slow and steady erosion of the NHS.
