People crowded the streets to protest against mandatory vaccination passports and the vaccination of teenagers. This measure is particularly unpoppular as the goverrnment has usurped parants rights by permitting children to be vaccinated without parental consent Protesters held signs reading ‘stay away from our kids’ and a young boy held a card with the words, ‘Leave us alone, I’m a child, I can’t consent’
Today's London event was being held as part of the World Wide Rally For Freedom, a widespread effort to ‘denounce Covid-19-related policies and restrictions on movement and activity’ which the protestors correctly claim have violated human righs and constitutional law. Protests also took place in other cities around the UK including Manchester and Cardiff.
At 2:48pm, the Metropolitan
Police tweeted: ‘There is currently a march in the Euston area, which
is heading towards the West End. Officers are with the march, which is
moving through the area causing a minor disruption to traffic.’ This was a fine example of British understatement although not as blatant as the understatement employed by all mainstrean broadcast news organisations, none of which managed to find time to mention the protest.
In further updates, the Met Police presence followed the march as it reached Oxford Circus, Trafalgar Square and headed towards Whitehall. Meanwhile, Britain’s Covid outbreak is continuing to flat line despite the return to schools with new daily infections increasing week-on-week for the first time in ten days, according to official statistics which renders the always ineffective restrictions redundant.
The mood of anger among protestors has escalated since the rollout of jabs for children aged 12 to 15 was given the go ahead last week, with the vaccinations set to start on Wednesday.
