THOUSANDS of Anti-Lockdown Protesters joined Anti-Vaxxers and Conspiracy Theorists in London’s Trafalgar Square on Saturday to demonstrate against measures imposed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson to curb the pandemic, despite cases sky-rocketing to 6,874 and the UK death toll increasing by 34 in the past 24 hours.
Conspiracy theorist David Icke among others spoke to the crowd before Met Police disrupted the peaceful event attacking peaceful protesters and leaving some with blood on their faces. Signs against vaccination and could also be seen in the protest.

Organisers of the event said they do not consent to social distancing measures, the obligatory use of masks, potentially mandatory vaccinations, and the use of tracking and tracing systems, as well as 5G signals, among others.
The event started at 12pm and has passed off peacefully so far, with no major reports of violence.
Met Police, to their credit stood down riot cops, and so far and a softer police presence has been presented at the event. It is yet to be seen wether a stronger police response will be sent in when the crowds are required to disperse.
The UK has seen a sharp rise of infection cases in recent days, with the government responding with a series of measures including ban on social gatherings of more than six people, limited opening hours for pubs and restaurants, face masks compulsory for bar staff and non-seated costumers, among others.
The measures are in effect in England, Scotland, and Wales and those who don’t follow the rules are subject to fines starting from £200 pounds.
