Niamh Harris – The BBC have (as usual) remained silent on an event that bought London to a standstill yesterday.
Protesters gathered in Parliament Square on Saturday for a Unite for Freedom rally with some claiming the pandemic is a hoax.
Some held placards which read ‘We do not consent’, ‘You have no power over us’, and ‘We’re not guinea pigs’.
The Daily Expose noted that the while BBC News and Sky News remained completely silent, some other outlets including ITV News gave some coverage to the mass protest for your freedom. Unfortunately their coverage was full of lies as their headline reads – ‘Hundreds join anti-Covid vaccine demonstration in Parliament Square’. The number was more likely over a million.
London is alive. London is awake!
I’m sure BBC will tell you this is 1-200 anti-vaxxers 😅 pic.twitter.com/SKvWfp6ryy

RT reports: The rally brought together groups of people who are variously unhappy with the prolonged lockdowns imposed by the government, mistrustful of Covid-19 vaccines and harbor anti-government sentiment.
Politician David Kurten, formerly of the UK Independence Party, estimated that the gathering was larger than the one held last weekend. “We are all out, normal people, not wearing any masks, not taking any vaccines, demanding that the government give us back the civil liberties that they never had the right to take away,” he said, summarizing the protesters’ cause.

Anti-lockdown protests similar to the one in London have been happening on a regular basis in many Western countries and are sometimes met with police action.
In the UK, the mistrust in government policies has been fuelled by an often-shifting narrative, which started with a call to endure a short period of restrictions to “flatten the curve” of Covid-19 infections and protect the National Health Service from being overwhelmed, but instead went on for months
