Spaniards in lockdown bang pots in protest during king's speech

MADRID (Reuters) - Banging pots and pans from their balconies, thousands of Spaniards under lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic nearly drowned out King Felipe’s broadcast address to the nation on Wednesday in protest over a scandal involving his father.
People bang on saucepans with spoons on their balconies demanding from former King Juan Carlos to donate 100 million dollars, he allegedly received from Saudi Arabia's late king, to the Spanish health system currently struggling to combat coronavirus, during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) health emergency in Madrid, Spain, March 18, 2020.

Repeating an earlier protest at noon, people in central Madrid, summoned by a call on social media, demanded that former King Juan Carlos donate millions he had reportedly received from Saudi Arabia to the struggling health system.

“The applause is for those who take care of us. The pans are for the corruption money to go to our health system,” leftist movement Mas Pais said in a tweet.

Spaniards have also been coming to their balconies to cheer health workers during the lockdown in Europe’s second worst-hit country by the virus after Italy. They have been confined to their homes since Saturday for all but essential outings.

Even in the traditionally conservative neighbourhoods of Madrid the noise of the banging of pots and pans was deafening, nearly silencing Felipe’s uplifting words urging Spaniards to beat the epidemic together.

“Now we must put aside our differences. We must unite around the same objective: to overcome this serious situation. And we have to do it together ... with serenity and confidence, but also with determination and energy,” Felipe said.

It was his first extraordinary address to the nation since 2017, at the height of a constitutional crisis caused by a short-lived declaration of independence by Catalan separatists.

On Wednesday night, the sound of pots and pans rang, too, in the streets of Barcelona, where the protest had been called by separatist parties.

King Felipe said on Sunday he had renounced his inheritance from his father, former King Juan Carlos, and stripped the ex-monarch of his palace allowance.

A Swiss newspaper has reported that while he was king, Juan Carlos accepted $100 million from Saudi Arabia. Juan Carlos, who abdicated in 2014 after nearly 40 years on the throne, has not commented on the report.

The royal household said in a statement that Juan Carlos had not told his son about the Saudi funds.

FLOUT OF ORDER Outrage as ‘anti-lockdown conspiracy theorists ignore coronavirus fears to stage public protest in Vancouver’
https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/11385702/outrage-as-anti-lockdown-conspi racy-theorists-protest-vancouver/

Lottie Tiplady-Bishop 13 Apr 2020, 11:37Updated: 14 Apr 2020, 22:13

PROTESTERS gathered outside Vancouver's City Hall yesterday, appearing to flout lockdown rules and slam the quarantine as "martial law".

Footage from the apparent protest shows a small group of people brandishing posters, one emblazoned with the words "fake news".

⚠ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates
Dan Dicks pictured with protesters - who don't appear to be social distancing

In the video, shot and shared by Dan Dicks of Press for Truth - described as an "alternative media outlet" - Dicks says the group have already been approached by one man who acted violently and allegedly tried to break a protester's camera.

Similar outrage has been seen online, with some Twitter users branding them "#COVIDIOTS".

Speaking to the protesters, Mr Dicks urges people not to "drink the Kool-Aid" and praises the group for not being " whipped into the fear state by the government".

Speaking to Sun Online the Press for Truth founder said he was in attendance to document the event "as a reporter".

One man brands the virus "overblown," another claims the pandemic is a "b***s*** lie".

Mr Dicks adds that he is planning to speak to David Icke in the coming days, a former footballer and conspiracy theorist, who in a recent YouTube live stream claimed 5G towers and coronavirus are connected.

He said: "If 5G continues and reaches where they want to take it, human life as we know it is over... so people have to make a decision."

It comes following a number of 5G masts being burned down with calls for more to also be destroyed in the aftermath following Icke's interview.

In a Facebook post from someone who appeared to be in attendance at the protest 5G theories are mentioned several times and conspiracy videos shared to the comments, although Mr Dicks' video doesn't cover that particular theory.

In an interview with social justice campaigner Susan Stanfield, who Dicks says helped to organise the protest, Ms Stanfield says the lockdown is "destroying the economy".

She also designed a yellow "no more lockdowns" poster calling for global protests.

Susan tells the reporter: "For me, I'm here to end the economic lockdown, we're all suffering financially and it has to end."

She adds she plans to take legal action against the government of British Columbia for economic fallout due to the lockdown, telling viewers: "Someone has to take responsibility for what has happened to the economy".

One man can be seen at the protest donning a surgical mask and holding a poster claiming: "Stupid-20 is 1000 xs more dangerous than Convid-19."

When asked about the number of people dying from the virus, one protester says: "People die every day".

Dan Dicks adds a clarification that "people die with coronavirus, not of coronavirus".

He adds: "They're clearly fudging the numbers".

Another woman asked why she's there tells him: "It's dumb to be an inside cat."

The protest comes as a number of bizarre conspiracy theories sweep the globe amid the coronavirus lockdown.

Some online crackpots have claimed the virus is the work of the US military, while others allege the outbreak is a "hoax" designed to stop Brexit.

Experts across the globe have blasted the spread of such theories, which threaten to "incite violence" among panicking citizens.

"Conspiracy theories can be very harmful for society," researchers Daniel Jolley, of Northumbria University, and Pia Lamberty, of Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz, wrote in The Conversation last week.

"Not only can they influence people's health choices, they can interfere with how different groups relate to each other.

"They also increase hostility and violence towards those who are perceived to be 'conspiring'."

Macron protesters take to Paris streets in defiance of coronavirus lockdown
https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/1255196/emmanuel-macron-yellow-ve st-protests-paris-france-coronavirus-lockdown-cases-latest

FRENCH security forces were out in force in Paris on Saturday as anti-government "Yellow Vest" protesters defied President Emmanuel Macron's ban on mass gatherings aimed at preventing the spread of coronavirus.

Coronavirus: Yellow vest protesters defy mass gathering ban

In a televised address to the nation on Thursday, Mr Macron announced school closures and told people to avoid close contact for fear of spreading the illnes, which has killed 79 people in France and infected more than 3,600. Interior Minister Christophe Castaner on Friday said all gatherings with more than 100 people had been banned. Paris police had already turned down requests for protesters to demonstrate at sensitive sites this Saturday, including the Champs Elysees where violent clashes broke out between security forces and protesters almost a year ago to the day.

Riot police officer

A riot police officer in front of a heavily armed vehicle blocking the road leading to the presidential palace said: "It's Saturday, demonstration day. Some people think that the coronavirus won't touch them and refuse to respect the advice."

The government published an official decree on Saturday banning all non-essential gatherings, but hundreds of protesters, some wearing protective masks, began convening outside the Montparnasse train station, chanting anti-Macron slogans.

The yellow vests, named after the high-visibility jackets they wear, were holding a 70th consecutive Saturday of action.

The movement emerged late in 2018, triggered by fuel tax rises, and swelled into a revolt against Macron's government.

While protests are now much smaller, anger at Macron's government remains.

Saturday's demonstration serves as a remainder to the President a day before voters are set to go to the polls in local elections.

The elections are an important test for the former investment banker with opponents now particularly angered by his plans to reform the French pensions system.

His En Marche party is not expected to do well.

One pensioner said: "We had to come and mark the day to tell Macron that we're still here and that we won't accept his pension reform."

Voters will begin choosing mayors for 35,000 town halls and almost half a million councillors on Sunday, overshadowed by the coronavirus outbreak which is expected to hit turnout at the vote, which is usually relatively high.

Macron decided to go ahead with the elections despite the virus concerns, which have led the government to shut schools and universities, suspend major sporting events, curtail public transport and close tourism attractions.

Disneyland Paris became the latest casualty on Saturday closing its doors until the end of March.

Speaking in a live televised address on Thursday, Mr Macron said:

“This epidemic is the most grave public health crisis that France has known in a century.

“Despite the efforts to slow it down, the virus continues to spread and is accelerating.”

Coronavirus: residents of Hubei community defy lockdown to protest against overpriced food
https://www.scmp.com/news/china/politics/article/3075213/coronavirus-r esidents-hubei-community-defy-lockdown-protest

Tensions bubble over at Sea Mountain estate in Yingcheng after man is detained for providing alternative to government-sanctioned suppliers
People tired of having to pay inflated prices for food and other essential items, resident says

Kristin Huang

After weeks of quietly accepting a government-enforced lockdown, the patience of some residents of a Chinese city close to the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak
finally ran out on Thursday, as they gathered to protest against the high prices they say they are being forced to pay for their groceries.

For the past several weeks, the supply of food to the tens of millions of people forced to live in isolation across Hubei province has been carefully controlled by local government agencies.

But many residents of Yingcheng, a city of 600,000 people about an hour’s drive from Wuhan, considered the goods on offer to be overpriced. So when a man was detained by the police for providing the same products at lower prices, they decided enough was enough.

According to a post on social media by the city government’s Covid-19 emergency command centre, the protest began at about 7.30pm at the Sea Mountain residential complex, which is home to about 8,000 people.

Defying the terms of the lockdown, hundreds of residents gathered on a basketball court within the compound to vent their anger. They dispersed only after local government officials and police arrived at the scene.

The demonstration was sparked by the detention of a Sea Mountain resident surnamed Cheng, who used his personal connections to supply his neighbours with groceries, The Beijing News reported on Friday.

He was detained on the charge of “unlicensed sales” but released after about an hour, the report said.

Another resident, identified only as Zhou, said people were fed up at having to pay inflated prices for food and other essential items.

The situation had been going on for over a month, she said, adding that some of the vegetables provided through the official channels were old and no longer edible.

“We were so angry that we’d been deprived of choice, of access to cheaper and better products,” she said.

In a statement released on Friday, the city government promised to increase the number of supply channels and subsidise suppliers so they could offer lower prices.

It said it would also set up a task force to transport daily necessities directly from production bases to designated shops.

An official surnamed Liu from the government of Xiaogan, which administers Yingcheng, said that in prioritising the lockdown, the needs of residents had been overlooked.

“We know there are some problems with higher prices and disqualified products, and the Xiaogan government has taken measures to tackle that,” he said.

According to local media reports, authorities in Xiaogan last week fined several designated suppliers for overcharging for their goods.

Steve Tsang, director of the SOAS China Institute in London, said the China’s centralised control system meant that the “party-state seeks to control everything, including the supply and pricing of food but it cannot do so as effectively as it would like and profiteering by some led to unintended consequences”.

Tsang also said the protest appeared to be simply “against an injustice that most cannot afford”.

“With the government saying that China is now on top with the virus, people are behaving more normally and thus refuse to tolerate the apparent profiteering.

“When one’s income has been significantly affected by the lockdown and prices go up substantially, people just can’t afford not to find alternatives. And when this is met by police action, people get angry and upset. Normal human behaviour, which should be predictable.”

Peng Peng, vice-president of the Guangdong System Reform Research Society, a think tank, said local governments had to improve the support they gave to communities most affected by the coronavirus epidemic.

“Hospitals and communities are on the front line in the fight against the outbreak and their needs should not be neglected,” he said, adding that local authorities should seek to relax their controls on people’s movements as the health crisis eased.

The protest in Yingcheng came less than a week after Chinese Vice-Premier Sun Chunlan was heckled by residents during a visit to Wuhan on March 6.
As the state councillor walked through the grounds of the Kaiyuan Gongguan estate, people yelled from the windows of their high-rise homes that “it’s all fake
”.

They claimed the management company responsible for the residential complex had stage-managed Sun’s visit, quickly cleaning up the public areas before she arrived and arranging for fake volunteers to deliver groceries to its locked-down households.

APRIL 20, 2020 / 4:19 PM / 2 DAYS AGO
Hundreds protest in southern Russian against coronavirus curbs
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-russia-protests/ hundreds-protest-in-southern-russian-against-coronavirus-curbs-idUSKBN 22225B

Alexander Marrow, Maria Tsvetkova
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Hundreds of people protested against regional authorities in southern Russia on Monday over what they said were restrictive and unnecessary coronavirus measures, state-owned TV and demonstrators said.

The forced closure of businesses across Russia and the imposition of strict self-isolation measures has caused economic pain to many households, particularly in Russia’s regions, where salaries are lower and the virus less entrenched.

Russia has reported 47,121 cases of the coronavirus so far, but the Republic of North Ossetia in southern Russia, where Monday’s protest took place, has officially registered only 145 cases and two deaths.

Vyacheslav Bitarov, the head of the republic, addressed protesters in the regional capital, Vladikavkaz. Video footage showed hundreds of protesters packed tightly into a square, with police officers in riot gear looking on.

None of the protesters, some of whom were detained according to local media reports, appeared to be wearing masks.

One protester, Vadim Cheldiev, set out his demands in a post on his Telegram channel of around 10,000 subscribers. They included the resignation of the regional government and head of the republic and new elections.

“Today, under the pretext of the coronavirus, which doesn’t exist, people are driven into slavery, they are trying to establish total control over us all,” said Cheldiev in a video.

The Rossiya Alania TV channel’s website described the protests as “unauthorised action.”

“Many employees of the Interior Ministry and Rosgvardiya (Russia’s National Guard) are around. The OMON (riot police) cordoned off the government building.”

The Kremlin has given regional governors wide leeway to take their own measures to try to halt the spread of the virus.

In Moscow and other cities, some users of internet giant Yandex’s Navigator mobile application posted complaints to authorities by using the same system usually used to mark traffic incidents, tagging locations near the Kremlin.

“My business has burned because of you!” read one anonymous post.

Another said: “There is nothing to feed children!!”

Protests erupt against coronavirus lockdowns around the world
Demonstrations flare in a number of countries as people rebel against measures introduced to contain virus
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/04/20/protests-erupt-against-cor onavirus-lockdowns-around-world/

By Marcus Parekh 21 April 2020 • 12:35pm

In the United States, pockets of protest have erupted in state capitals, with demonstrators demanding an end to the lockdown.

Emboldened by remarks by Donald Trump, the US president, protesters have gathered outside state capitol buildings and governor's offices from Michigan to California to call for a return to normal life.

On Tuesday, medics and protesters came face to face in Denver. In incredible scenes which illustrate a growing rift in the US, the demonstrators were met by the medics wearing green scrubs and facemasks, who were there, they said, as a “reminder” of why the measures are in place.

America is the country worst affected by coronavirus worldwide, with 799,515 cases and 42,897 deaths reported....

Police remove a demonstrator during he anti-confinement protest in Berlin

German police arrested dozens of protesters in Berlin on Saturday for flouting the coronavirus lockdown measures they were demonstrating against.

About 1,000 people turned out for the rally, which has become a weekly event in the German capital.

Saturday's protest attracted mainly far-left activists but there were also right-wing supporters and members of other fringe groups.

Police put up barriers around Rosa Luxemburg square, where the protesters were headed, leaving the participants to gather in nearby roads.

The protest "is not in line with the rules" in place to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, police said on Twitter, telling those taking part to disperse.

Some of the demonstrators wore T-shirts accusing Chancellor Angela Merkel of "banning life" while others simply called for "freedom".

Others brandished placards bearing slogans such as "Stop the pharmaceutical lobby".

The protest was unauthorised as a result of emergency rules in Berlin banning gatherings of more than 20 people.

The protest organisers' website called for "an end to the state of emergency" and played down the threat posed by the virus.

Public discontent with the confinement rules has been growing gradually in Germany, as in other countries, though Merkel's popularity remains high.

She has received plaudits for her management of the health crisis which has seen Germany's COVID-19 toll -- 5,500 according to an AFP tally -- remain significantly lower than in Italy, Spain, France and Britain where the death tolls have all risen above 20,000.

Opposition to the lockdown measures is being led by the far-right, the main opposition force in the German parliament.

The far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party accuses the government of exaggerating the risk posed by the virus and has called for the immediate reopening of all businesses.

Reopening California: Huge crowd gathers in Sacramento, SF, SoCal to demand Gov. Newsom lift COVID-19 restriction
By Eric Thomas and Alix Martichoux Saturday, May 2, 2020 2:31AM
https://abc7news.com/reopen-protests-fully-ca-now-movement-california- rally/6142450/

Protesters frustrated with ongoing shelter-in-place restrictions in California due to the novel coronavirus pandemic gathered across the state to give Gov. Gavin Newsom a piece of their mind.

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Protesters frustrated with ongoing shelter-in-place restrictions in California due to the novel coronavirus pandemic are gathering in at least 11 cities around the state to give Gov. Gavin Newsom a piece of their mind.

Starting at noon Friday, thousands of people gathered outside the State Capitol in Sacramento. Many of them could be seen standing closely together, not wearing masks or face coverings. They cheered and waved American flags as speakers chanted through megaphones.

Another such protest was planned at San Francisco City Hall. The group was planning to create a "gridlock loop" of cars on the streets surrounding City Hall and to have a walking protest out front.

Despite their urges to reopen California as quickly as possible, organizers seem to at least acknowledge there's a health risk (not to mention a violation of the law) in gathering a bunch of people together in close proximity. The group's website instructs protesters to stand at least six feet apart from each other, per CDC guidelines.

The group also urged attendees to create poster board signs with a "variety of verbiage." (Suggestions include "FREEDOM WE THE PEOPLE," "OPEN OUR CHURCHES," "The shutdown is killing us" and "Practice Media Distancing.") Not sure what to chant? They have suggestions for that, too: "Open our state now" and "Back to school."


Gov. Newsom has repeatedly said he's feeling the pressure to reopen the state more quickly, but is leaning on scientific data to decide on timing. "Politics will not drive our decision making. Protests will not drive our decision making. Political pressure will not drive our decision making," the governor said.



Red, white and blue attire is preferred, but not required.

Protesters were also planning to gather in San Diego and Los Angeles, all at the same time as Gov. Newsom's daily noon briefing on novel coronavirus.

"The rights of people are being suspended and the constitution trampled on and that's the biggest problem we have at this time," says Vivienne Reign who is a business owner helping to organize the Sacramento rally Friday.

While some of the local "Reopen California" Facebook groups have thousands of members, opposition to the rallies is also high on social media. Christopher Martin writes, "Too early, too soon. STAY HOME."

"There's always going to be those that are a little selfish and think about themselves first," says San Francisco resident Eric Westcott.

"All of us at some point in the day end up going out a little bit selfish to overdo that because not only are you at risk you are putting others at risk," says Neeharika Vinod.

Gov. Newsom has repeatedly said he's feeling the pressure to reopen the state more quickly, but is leaning on scientific data to decide on timing.

"Politics will not drive our decision making. Protests will not drive our decision making. Political pressure will not drive our decision making," said Gov. Newsom. "The science, data and public health will drive our decision making."

London lockdown protest: Huge crowd gathers in Hyde Park for idiotic coronavirus stunt
https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/1283129/london-news-lockdown-hyde-pa rk-protest-met-police-coronavirus-covid-19-latest-uk-news

HUNDREDS of people have gathered in London's Hyde Park for a protest against the coronavirus lockdown.
By BRIAN MCGLEENON
PUBLISHED: 13:20, Sat, May 16, 2020 | UPDATED: 14:40, Sat, May 16, 2020

Huge crowds, with many carrying banners condemning Boris Johnson's lockdown, have gathered in the major London park. One protestor carried a sign including the slogan 'no to the new abnormal'. Reports suggest the lockdown protest crowd numbers around three dozen.

The gathering protestors were standing close together near Speaker's Corner in Hyde Park.

Many held placards and banners explaining why they had come out to demonstrate.

The slogans included words such as "freedom over fear".

Mounted police surrounded the protestors and looked on.


Finance worker David Samson, 50, told the PA news agency he came because "I never thought I'd see in my generation the suppressing of civil rights" over a "fake virus".

One protestor was taken away in handcuffs, the gathered people then began booing the police.

The person being led away was Piers Corbyn, brother of ex-Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

He was taken away after declining to leave when asked by a police officer and declining to give his details when asked.

He had brought a megaphone to Hyde Park corner and began proclaiming that 5G and the coronavirus pandemic were linked, calling it a "pack of lies to brainwash you and keep you in order".

One protester, Dee, who did not wish to give her surname, said her job in the hair and beauty industry had been hit by the crisis.

Speaking to PA she said: “I am here because I am worried about civil liberties being taken away.

“Reading the coronavirus act that has gone through Parliament it seems there are changes being made which infringe our freedom.

“And I am worried the media has run away with the Covid-19 thing and blown it all out of proportion.

“People are still believing the mainstream media where the actual figures being put out explain it all that the risk of dying from Covid-19 are so tiny.”

On Friday police said they were committed to thwarting any attempt to break lockdown restrictions through planned protests and demonstrations.

Many social media accounts announced anti-lockdown protests would occur this weekend.

Flyers for around 60 protests to be held in parks in cities such as Manchester, Leicester, and Southampton have circulated online, produced by the little-known “UK Freedom Movement” which aims to say “no to the new normal and no to the unlawful lockdown”.

A spokesperson for Greater Manchester police said: “We have patrol plans in place throughout the area to respond to these protests if required.”

Around 120 people from the large block of flats are thought to be infected with the novel coronavirus, prompting officials on Thursday to order all 700 residents into a fresh localized lockdown.
The disturbances broke out around midday on Saturday, according to the spokesperson for the police in the state of Lower Saxony.

The official added that angry residents threw stones, tires and a computer at police out of windows of the complex. They also set objects on fire.
Several residents then attempted to break down the fence that had been erected by city authorities.
Police used tear gas to force back the angry residents, according to the Hessische Niedersächsische Allgemeine (HNA) newspaper, citing eyewitnesses.
A blank was also fired from a pistol inside the complex, known as Groner Landstrasse, according to HNA.
One month lockdown
The entire complex has now been ordered to remain in lockdown until June 25.
City officials stipulated that the residents must remain inside to prevent further spread of the virus. The decision has been denounced by politicians and residents because of the state of the run-down complex.

The outbreak is one of several to hit large German housing complexes.
DW reported on a virus cluster that broke out in May in the Iduna housing complex, also located outside Göttingen's city center – just over a kilometer from the latest outbreak

Brixton: 22 officers injured and police cars smashed after street party
June 25, 202022
https://labourheartlands.com/brixton-22-officers-injured-and-police-ca rs-smashed-after-street-party/

Twenty-two officers have been injured and police cars smashed up during “significant disorder” following an illegal street party in Brixton overnight.
This cannot be acceptable behaviour in 21st century Britain

Footage on social media showed a line of police retreating from crowds of people running at them with makeshift weapons on Overton Road near the Angell Town estate in Brixton.

Police said they were called by concerned residents to the illegal street party but were met by a “hostile” crowd.

15 police officers were injured during the confrontation with those at a street party
Police were called to Overton Road after reports of an unlicensed music event and were attacked as they attempted to disperse the crowd.

Video of the chaos also showed bottles being thrown at officers as they were chased from the area and the Prime Minister has condemned the “appalling scenes”.

Two young men could be seen stomping on the bonnet and windshield of a Met Police vehicle as bystanders cheered them on.

Another man is seen brandishing an improvised weapon in front of a line of riot police as he shouts at them to “back up”.

In another clip, one member of the public can be seen bleeding from the face.

One woman said: “They’ve finished the car. My Lord the police have abandoned their own car.”

While another shocked onlooker said repeatedly: “The police are getting run out of here.”

One woman who witnessed the scene condemned it as “disgusting and sickening” in light of current lockdown rules.

She tweeted: “They are out of control and you want to continue to ease lockdown? How were they allowed to have a BLOCK PARTY that had hundreds of people and it didn’t get locked off?”

Four people have been arrested for assault and public order offences and remain in police custody.

Officers in riot gear attended the scene but were forced away as the crowd goaded them and hurled missiles.

Police have been involved in clashes with protesters on occasions during the past month, including during a far-right rally outside Parliament and to a lesser extent at Black Lives Matter demonstrations around the capital.

“Our officers work incredibly hard to engage and explain the public health message and regulations to prevent such gatherings occurring,” Basic Command Unit Commander Colin Wingrove said in a police statement on Thursday. “The violence shown towards officers is totally unacceptable and we will not tolerate it in any form.”


One officer said his team had been hit by bottles and missiles and subsequently made a tactical withdraw from the area.

He added: “Everyone of us wanted to kit up and go back in , due to injured officers unable to do so. Proud of all officers there last night. Very Hostile crowd.”

In total, 22 officers were hurt, with two requiring hospital treatment for non-serious injuries.

BCU Commander Colin Wingrove, said:“Our role is to protect the public and ensure guidelines are adhered to in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19 protecting the NHS and save lives.

“Last night we received numerous concerns from residents complaining about a large gathering, noise, anti-social behaviour and violence and officers responded to those concerns.

“These gatherings are unlawful, as well as posing a risk to public health and against coronavirus restrictions.

“The violence shown towards officers is totally unacceptable and we will not tolerate it in any form.

“An investigation into the incident is now taking place and those involved will be brought to justice.”

London mayor Sadiq Khan said: “I’m in touch with the Met about the completely unacceptable events in #Brixton overnight.

“Violence against the police will not be tolerated.

“Large gatherings during Covid-19 are deeply irresponsible and risk others’ lives.”

A spokesman for the Prime Minister said: “These are appalling scenes, violence against police will not be tolerated.

“Anyone who assaults the police or any emergency worker should feel the full force of the law.

“We will shortly be launching a consultation on doubling the maximum sentence that could be given for assaulting a police officer or emergency worker.”

Coronavirus lockdown could cause ‘200,000 extra deaths’
https://metro.co.uk/2020/07/20/coronavirus-lockdown-cause-200000-extra -deaths-13014848/

View 25 comments Sam Courtney-GuyMonday 20 Jul 2020 5:39 pm Share this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messenger 721 SHARES Disruption to medical treatments is set to cause more than 180,000 extra deaths (Picture: Official government estimates indicate more than 200,000 people could die as a result of lockdown and Covid’s impact on the NHS, it has been reported. Forecasts made in April calculated that 12,000 to 25,000 people could die from delays to treatment in the first six months of the pandemic, with another 185,000 deaths in the medium-to-long term. Meanwhile it warned there could be 500 extra suicides during the first wave of coronavirus cases, and between 600 and 12,000 additional deaths per year in the event of a severe recession. The estimates included in a report whose existence was revealed by Chief Scientific Adviser Sir Patrick Vallance only last week, and disclosed by The Daily Telegraph on Monday. ADVERTISEMENT Top articles by Metro London road closed for 11 hours after ammunition fell off police vehicle roof READ MORE SKIP AD The estimates were put together by the Department of Health, Office for National Statistics (ONS), the Home Office and the government’s Actuary Department in an effort to quantify the collateral damage of the government’s response to the virus. Visit our live blog for the latest updates: Coronavirus news live Appearing before Parliament’s science and technology committee, Sir Patrick said there was ‘a risk’ that a second lockdown could be required around winter-time. But Boris Johnson later played down the chances of restrictions being brought in nationwide, stressing the advances officials have made in isolating local outbreaks. He told the newspaper on Sunday: ‘I can’t abandon that tool any more than I would abandon a nuclear deterrent. But it is like a nuclear deterrent, I certainly don’t want to use it. And nor do I think we will be in that position again.’ Sir Patrick revealed the report’s existence at a hearing with MPs on Thursday (Picture: PA) The report also forecast about 20 extra deaths this year due to domestic violence, and an increase in accidents at home by ‘a few tens’. Its estimates assumed 75 per cent of elective treatments would be cancelled over six months and would not be significantly reordered by priority afterwards, which appears increasingly unlikely. However there are more than 3.8 million people on the waiting list for elective care as of May, according to NHS figures published on Thursday. The figure fell by 100,000 from April but this has been widely put down to a drop in the number of people being referred for testing and treatment during the pandemic. Doctors have said many vulnerable patients in need of care have avoided checking into hospital or seeing their GP for fear of catching the virus. Data analysis published in April by UCL experts found urgent referrals for suspected cancer had dropped by an average of 76 per cent since lockdown. Data suggests people who need hospital treatment are reluctant to get help (Picture: AFP) Last week Oxford University researchers revealed that 5,000 fewer heart attack patients were admitted to hospital between March and May. As hospitals continue to operate at limited capacity this number could soar to 10 million by the end of the year, according to the NHS Confederation. Experts have warned against attributing the economic downturn entirely to the lockdown rather than to the virus itself. Many pointed to the example of Sweden, which brought in light restrictions in place of a full lockdown and has suffered significantly more deaths than neighbouring country to little economic advantage. Writing in The Guardian in June, Oxford economics profession Simon Wren-Lewis said: ‘If there had been no lockdown, and the epidemic had run its course unhindered, we would have seen a fall in output of similar size.

Police were pelted with bottles at an illegal rave on an estate as the capital is swamped by illicit parties.

More than 500 illegal raves have been organised across London in the past month, police have revealed, amid fears of further disorder this weekend.

Scotland Yard have vowed to continue to shut down the "dangerous" unlicensed music events and seize sound systems to tackle the surge in street parties since Covid-19 lockdown measures have been eased.

The force released body-worn footage on Friday showing officers being pelted with bottles and other objects at an illegal rave at an estate in Brixton, south London, on June 25.

Voices can be heard shouting "hold the line" and "missiles, missiles" at the street party, where police vehicles were smashed and 22 officers injured.

The Metropolitan Police said information about more than 530 events across the capital has been received since the Brixton rave, with police responding to 23 a day.


Some 86 separate incidents were reported last Saturday alone, including an illegal rave at an estate in Finsbury Park, north London, where objects were again thrown at officers trying to disperse crowds.

Commander Ade Adelekan said: "There can be doubt that unlicensed music events are dangerous and highly disruptive for local communities.

"Communities caught in the middle of an event have a miserable time, with large crowds turning up at their estate and playing loud music and consuming alcohol, and at times, drugs and causing damage.

"The fear they create is totally unacceptable."

He added: "What is of great concern to me is the very real risk that these events will result in violence.

"During previous events a small minority have targeted police officers with extreme violence, resulting in police officers being injured.

"We also have to remember that the country remains in a national health crisis.

"It is vitally important we all play our part in avoiding mass gatherings to help protect ourselves, family and friends.

"It is because of this, we will not standby and allow these events to happen. They will be shut down."

Police have released 999 calls from residents reporting illegal raves, with one man saying: "It's just scary."

A caller can be heard saying party-goers have "blockaded the road", while a woman complains they are "shouting, making too much noise, bottles everywhere".

Another caller says: "Hi, there's an illegal rave outside. There's hundreds of them and they're very noisy, very rowdy and there's more coming."

The Met said officers will work with organisers and local authorities to shut down illegal raves and will use laws to seize sound systems and laptops or break up crowds and make arrests if people fail to comply.

Commander Adelekan, added: "I would urge anyone who has any information on a UME to reach out and let us know.

"The earlier we have information, the sooner we can act and ensure that crowds are sent away and sounds systems are turned off and seized."

Police across the country have had to deal with a surge in illegal raves since lockdown restrictions were eased.

Up to 17,000 people, including libertarians and anti-vaccination activists, have marched in Berlin to protest against Germany's coronavirus regulations. Many flouted guidance on wearing masks and physical distancing as they accused the government of 'stealing our freedom'.
While Germany had initial success in containing the virus, infections are rising and its R number has risen above one.
