Demonstrators chanted ‘Freedom’ as they marched through central London on Saturday, March 20, to protest coronavirus restrictions.
Henry Dukats shared video from Oxford Street showing the crowd marching from Hyde Park.
Met Police made arrests as they moved to disperse the crowd. Police had warned people not to attend the protests as they were in violation of coronavirus restrictions. Police said those who attended and did not comply with requests to disperse may face “fixed penalty notice or arrest.”
The protests came as 60 MPs joined campaign groups Big Brother Watch and Liberty in signing a letter to the home secretary calling for a change in COVID-19 restrictions to allow protests to take place during lockdown. Credit: Henry Dukats via Storyful
