About two hundred anti COVID-19 lockdown protesters have me today at Hyde Park's Speaker's Corner in defiance of government health advice and social distancing rules. The group was calling for the end of the lockdown which it sees as a manifestation of so called New World Order (or New Normal) but also against vaccination, 5G and other conspiracy topics. Police officers made several arrests as the protesters tried to march through Hyde Park and ignored calls for dispersal.
