A large protest was held at Trafalgar Square in the heart of London on Saturday, 26 September 2020 to demonstrate against official measures that have been brought in since the coronavrus pandemic hit the U.K.
The event was organised to coincide with the six month anniversary of the Coronavirus Act 2020, which parliament rushed through and passed, with royal assent, on 25 March 2020. The legislation gives the government emergency powers to impose lockdowns and other restrictive social distancing measures, often with heavy financial penalties for those who do not conform. According to a number of media reports around 15,000 people attended the demonstration. Speakers at the event included Piers Corbyn and David Icke.
Following a police intervention to break-up the demonstration (two and half hours after it had begun) several hundred people then made their way to Hyde Park. There was a small skirmish when police made an intervention into the crowd to arrest two people.
