Storm of XR and anti-vaccine protests descend on London causing chaos


Animal Rebellion, an offshoot of climate change campaigners Extinction Rebellion, took over Smithfield meat market letting off pink flares and brandishing signs saying “Fish are friends, not food” and stop the “Stop the animal Holocaust”.

At the same time, anti-vaccination activists formed the London Freedom Rally in Hyde Park before marching with drums through south London taking over Brixton and on to Clapham Common.

Scared people stuck in PCR test centres hid inside as protestors put stickers on the windows saying ‘Save Lives, Stop Living’ and ‘If you fear people breathing then it is you who are ill’.

The Animal Rebellion event was held in conjunction with Camp Beagle, a protest group calling for the release of beagle dogs at MBR Acres in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, which rears dogs specifically for animal research.

The Metropolitan Police tweeted there was a blockage at Blackfriars Bridge due to the protesters and it was resolved shortly afterwards.

The demonstrators next staged a sit-in outside the offices of Cargill offices, an agricultural company, in nearby Queen Victoria Street.

All the campaigners then held a sit-in outside the offices and held a moment’s silence for aquatic animals “who are born into captivity, where they suffer and are killed”.

Founder of campaigning group Animal Think Tank, Laila Kassam, led the minute’s silence and spoke to the crowd.

She said: “Their voices are clear. Their resistance is clear. The injustice is clear…” We need to build power. And I’m not talking about consumer power, we cannot buy our way to a better world. I’m talking about social and political power.”
