The capitals of Great Britain and Canada hosted thousands of rallies of opponents of the restrictions imposed by the governments of countries related to the spread of coronavirus infection.
On August 29, about 10 thousand people took part in the rally on Trafalgar Square. Demonstrators called for “an end to government lies” and the restoration of all freedoms, and chanted slogans that the virus is a lie.
British conspiracy analyst, former soccer player and sports commentator David Ike spoke at the action. He called on the police to “stop serving psychopaths” and join the protesters.
Opponents of the fight against COVID-19 at the rally was supported by the brother of former Labour leader Pierce Korby. He was detained during the rally, which is the third time he has been detained in the last few months.
Another action of supporters of the lifting of restrictions was held last Saturday, August 29, in Ottawa. The Canadian TV channel CBS News reports that protesters went out to the parliament building; there were several hundred of them. There were no detentions at the rally.
The largest similar action took place in Berlin. Participants of the action tried to break through to the Reichstag, as a result of which the action grew into clashes with the police, and soon it was dispersed. Senator for Internal Affairs of Berlin Andreas Geisel said that about 300 people were detained during the protest action.
