Last Saturday, about 50,000 people attended another anti-Covid policy protest march to Trafalgar Square calling for freedom and an end to tyranny, but were violently dispersed by Metropolitan Police, who used the excuse that the people were not social distancing. Last month, riot police stormed the peaceful crowd, beating the protestors with batons and leaving many bloodied. On the same day, a Black Lives Matter protest against police brutality in Nigeria, but police did not attempt to disperse the crowds.

Anti-lockdown protestors calling for freedom and an end to tyranny were violently dispersed by police on Saturday.

The protest was organized by Save Our Rights UK, and organizers estimated that between 50,000 and 100,000 people attended. 

Under the banner “Stop the New Normal,” the march made its way from Hyde Park to Buckingham Palace and then to Trafalgar Square. The protestors also stopped at Scotland Yard, the headquarters of London Metropolitan Police, in order to say “what we think of the policing and what we think of how the laws have been presented.”

The marchers chanted slogans, shouting “we are the 99 percent,” making reference to the percentage of those who survive having COVID-19. Others joined in singing “I would rather be a human than a slave.” Once in Trafalgar Square, speakers gave talks to the crowd while police watched.

However, the Metropolitan Police soon moved in to disband the protest. Commander Adelekan, leading the police force at the scenestated that he “became increasingly concerned that those in the crowd were not maintaining social distancing or adhering to the terms of their own risk assessment.”

Adelekan continued: “(Organizers) did not take reasonable steps to keep protesters safe which then voided their risk assessment. At this point, officers then took action to disperse crowds in the interests of public safety. I am grateful that the vast majority of people listened to officers and quickly left the area.”

Graphic videos have appeared online, recording the steps that police took, with footage showing police shoving and forcefully throwing people to the ground. One video shows the police en masse chasing a protestor and pinning him to the ground.

Continued shutdowns of schools across the US have caused an alarming decline in learning. Remote virtual learning on computers is not working. Teachers’ unions have lobbied to keep schools closed.

November 24, 2020 Off-Guardian 0

The “second wave” of the “pandemic” is the excuse for Draconian lockdown measures, economic destitution, and sweeping police powers.

It seems that COVID in Europe is not now classified as a virus, but as a vampire, so some countries like France and Spain have imposed curfews. Apparently it only goes out at night seeking people to bite between 11pm and 6am. Although that can vary by an hour or two depending on the county it finds itself in.

Using social distancing and masks as an excuse for public policing and control – doesn’t work.

Only three diseases require social distancing and masks:
• Ebola
• TB
• Smallpox

People’s lack of medical/clinical knowledge and acumen is being massively played
