Mass protests kicked off on Saturday against the UK’s remaining Covid-19 restrictions, mask mandates and proposed vaccine passports.
Thousands of protesters have descended on London to protest the British government’s ongoing coronavirus restrictions. Though pubs and shops have reopened, stiff limits on gatherings remain in place.
Holding signs reading “Freedom is non-negotiable” and “No health passports,” the demonstrators gathered in the capital on Saturday. Billed by its organizers as the “biggest street party London has ever seen,” the rally drew thousands of participants unhappy with the lingering restrictions on gatherings and movement and opposed to the government’s vague plans to introduce so-called ‘vaccine passports’.
