POLICE STATE: UK Bans Protests

With the entire population of Britain now under de-facto house arrest as of Thursday, the move to a full on police state has edged closer with the announcement that protests are now banned.

The Times of London reports that a ban on demonstrations of more than two people will be made illegal under the second national lockdown.

Ironically, the move seems to be a response to the fact that Black Lives Matter were allowed to hold huge protests during the first lockdown, while families were not allowed to gather together in small numbers.

So now, any form of protest is apparently banned under the emergency measures.

The vagueness surrounding the overturning of a fundamental human right is chilling, with a A Home Office spokeswoman telling reporters that “the right to peaceful protest is one of the cornerstones of our democracy,” but adding “any gathering risks spreading the disease, leading to more deaths, so it is vital we all play our part in controlling the virus.”

“People must follow the rules on meeting with others, which apply to all gatherings and therefore protests too,” the government spokesperson added.

While police have been told by the government that they will have to break up protests, some officers have expressed a concern that the move will only embolden people to take to the streets.

A police source told The Times that “this is going to cause a lot of trouble.”

“People are going to be extremely angry and there are concerns they’ll protest the fact they can’t protest,” the source added.
