Breaking News ! Anti-lockdown campaigners marched through London in protest at Government restrictions today ( October 17).  Led by former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s brother Piers, demonstrators chanted “stick your poison vaccine up your arse”, "freedom" and “we are the 99%” as they walked down Oxford Street. Protesters were seen holding banners which read 'Covid-19 equals control', 'my body my choice' and 'scamdemic'.  Controversial figure Piers Corbyn, who has become known for his anti-lockdown movement, demanded no more lockdowns as he spoke to thousands of protesters this afternoon.  @PaulBrown_UK The protest comes on the day London was placed in Tier 2 lockdown measures, meaning Londoners are now banned from mixing with people from other households indoors.  MORE: More than half of England's population affected by tougher Covid-19 restrictions Under the new restrictions, people can meet in outdoor settings with a maximum of six people.  Piers Corbyn, who has previously been fined the maximum £10,000 for his anti-lockdown protests, also took part in a demonstration in Soho on Friday night. “We’re here to drink against the curfew,” he said. “To oppose the lockdowns, to oppose job losses caused by lockdowns, to oppose all of it. “The whole lot should be lifted now.” Commenting on today's protest, a spokesperson for Met Police said: "It is illegal for people to gather in groups of more than six, unless an exemption applies. "Protest is one of those exemptions, subject to certain conditions being met. The conditions include, amongst others, organisers possessing and complying with a risk assessment. "In this case, organisers had submitted a risk assessment in advance and met the conditions required for the exemption.

. "Enforcement remains a last resort and, as of 16.45hrs there has been one man arrested on suspicion of assault. He has been taken in to custody."   var article_url = encodeURIComponent(window.location.href);var content_id = encodeURIComponent('everything');var site_id = '_mvqfffmm2k4reopy2p44nc43na';var url = "//survey.g.doubleclick.net/survey?site="+site_id+"&url="+article_url+"&cid="+content_id+"&random="+(new Date).getTime();document.write(''+'');try { console.log('Showing survey directly'); _402_Show(); } catch(e) { console.log('Try 402'); console.log(e); }
