London Anti Lockdown protest turned violent and injured many. Many demonstrators were injured and blood was spilling. Even police officers were injured in the protest.
The coronavirus conspiracy theorist took to the street to protest against the lockdown in London.
The Metropolitan police have arrested 16 people so far regarding the violence. Thousands of people gathered at Trafalgar Square, with a variety of signs, flags, and placards that say ‘we do not consent’.
The crowd threw bottles at the police and shouted ‘pick your side’.
Demonstrators even accused the government of ‘tyranny’ for emergency measures.
Some of them even compared the COVID19 vaccine to ‘cyanide’.
Another placard said, If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, eventually people will believe it.’
Another woman held a card that said, ‘Hug a day, keeps the COVID away’.
Piers Corbyn, the brother of former Labor leader, Jeremy was pictured addressing the demonstrators.
Sadiq Khan, London Mayor, stressed that the large gathering is unacceptable, including the protest. He said that the measurements are taken to ensure the city is safe.
He further added,
‘The reckless and violent behavior of some protestors has left hard-working police officers injured and put the safety of our city, which is at a critical moment in the fight against this virus, at risk. This is totally unacceptable. ‘We cannot let the sacrifices Londoners have made be undermined by the selfish behavior of a small number.” – reported Metro.
