TEN thousand protesters hit the streets of London calling for an end to the Tory Lockdown and Economic Damage being done to the country in the name of protecting us from a virus that has a recovery rate of 99.5%.
They marched through Oxford Street and onto Trafalgar Square as Police tried to arrest protesters. The march had no political affiliation and had a wide coalition of both left-wing and right-wing figures. Some waved Trump banners, signs saying ‘Lockdown Means Tyranny” and called for an end to the Tory Lockdown.
Tensions were high between protesters and the police, as a man was arrested at the event as protesters tried to prevent the arrest, before the man was escorted to a van. The reason behind the arrest is not currently known.
Protesters were seen carrying signs reading “COVID-19 equals control” and “Curfews equal nazification.” The rally comes after UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a new three-tier alert system to tackle the rising numbers of COVID-19 infections in England on Wednesday.
The new measures, applicable in London and a few other cities, including York will mean people of different households will not be able to meet indoors, the rule of six will apply to outdoors, and that pubs and restaurants must close at 10pm.
Boris is also at war with the working-class in the North after he tried to impose a draconian Teir 3 lockdown despite having NO support form Northern Conservative and Labout MPs.
Nineteen Politicians form the North have joined forces to fight back against the Lockdown as the Tories refuse to offer real financial support for some of the poorest areas in England.
Since the beginning of the outbreak, the UK has recorded 689,257 cases of COVID-19 and over 43,000 related deaths, according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.
Piers Corbyn – the brother of former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was at the protest. He has been repeatedly arrested and fined thousands of pounds for speaking up against the Tories disastrous lockdown that is inflicting severe economic damage on the poorest in our society.
