- BREITBART - Dec 21, 2020 -
London Police forcibly shut down an anti-lockdown protest on Saturday for allegedly breaching the city’s coronavirus restrictions, arresting 29 people in the process.
Approximately 150 protesters took to the streets of the British capital, demanding that the government rescind its lockdown measures.
After less than one hour into the protest, police officers began arresting activists, claiming violations of social distancing guidelines. The Met also deployed tactics such as kettling in order to suppress crowds and prevent them from gathering.
One protester told Breitbart London: “We are protesting the corona lockdown because we feel that the government’s approach to the pandemic is completely unjust… [it is]taking away our human rights. We aren’t allowed to be humans anymore.”
