Huge crowd of anti-vaxxers led by the notorious David Icke gather to argue that virus is a lie spread in secret global plot organised by Bill Gates.
Called the Unite For Freedom march, the event started in Trafalgar Square at 12pm with demonstrators calling for “no more lockdowns” and “no to vaccinations”.
Pictures and video from the protest show thousands of people congregating in the square with many holding signs and placards.
Some signs read “World Hoax Organisation” while others pictured Boris Johnson alongside the words “Obsessive Covid Disorder”.
Another said: “What could they really do if we all just said ‘no’?”

Key speakers at the protest were set to include Jeremy Corbyn’s brother, climate change denier Piers Corbyn, and conspiracy theorist David Icke.
Among the huge crowds many people could be seen without face masks and social distancing measures did not appear to be being followed.
Activist Sonia Poulton, who was part of the protest, posted a video on Twitter earlier today.

David Icke has long been criticized as a ‘conspiracy theorist’ and has even gone as far as to say the Royal Family are ‘lizards from outer space.’
Other protests took place in the UK including in Birmingham and a similiar protest today over in Germany was disbanded immediately after it started.
