    London 2012: protests mount over denial of accreditation to The Voice


    The British Olympic Association (BOA) is coming under pressure to reverse its decision denying accreditation to The Voice, Britain's biggest black newspaper. It means that the paper's journalists cannot cover events from within the stadium nor will they be able to use the media centre.

    More than 700 people have signed a change.org petition started by Zita Holbourne, who argues that the decision is "insulting and racist."

    The Voice wins its Olympics accreditation

    Good sense has prevailed! The British Olympic Association (BOA) has bowed to pressure by reversing its decision not to provide accreditation for The Voice, Britain's biggest black newspaper.

    It means that The Voice's journalists will now be able to report from the London Olympic stadium and use its media centre.
