This topic is for all general discussion regarding the current COVID-19 pandemic. There are of course numerous other related topics for discussing specific aspects of this pandemic in more detail. And there are other parts of this forum for more 'off-topic' discussions.

An infantile news report on the lockdown protest today from our friends at The Guardian:

 

Thousands of protesters from across the UK gathered in London’s Trafalgar Square on Saturday afternoon to protest against coronavirus restrictions and reject mass vaccinations.

 

The event, which began at noon, drew a broad coalition including coronavirus sceptics, 5G conspiracy theorists and so-called “anti-vaxxers”.

Carrying placards railing against the World Health Organization, Bill Gates and the government restrictions to reduce the spread of coronavirus, the demonstrators called for an end to movement restrictions and mandatory face coverings. Many placards described the coronavirus pandemic as a “hoax” or “scam”.

 

A PA system set up in front of Nelson’s Column broadcast speeches by a number of speakers, who denied the reality and severity of the pandemic and accused the government of attempting to curtail civil liberties.

 

Among those due to speak were Piers Corbyn, the weather forecaster and older brother of the former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, the former newspaper columnist and health journalist Dr Vernon Coleman, and the conspiracist celebrity David Icke.

Although the demonstration focused on coronavirus restrictions, those taking part espoused anti-authoritarian grievances ranging from the lockdown to the imprisonment of Julian Assange to claims of elite child sexual abuse.

On the eve of the protest, Corbyn told the Guardian that a number of groups had come together to join in with the demonstration.

 

“In terms of whether you believe that the virus is a hoax or not, whatever is happening now is less than or equal to a normal flu, so the lockdowns and all that goes with them is unjustifiable in any terms,” he said.

 

“We are calling for MPs to refuse renewal of the Covid Act [Coronavirus Act], and if they do not, we will campaign to have them removed from office.”

Among those demonstrating on Saturday was 34-year-old Amina, who declined to give her surname. She carried a placard that said on one side, “Let food be thy medicine” and on the other, “Health doesn’t come from the tip of a needle.”

Of the food message on her placard, she said: “This is what we need to do. It’s worked for our ancestors, it’s worked for a lot of people around the world – and still is.”

 

Amina said she did not trust vaccines, and shared a number of examples of vaccines used in the developing world that she said caused widespread damage. “If you want to profit off the back of my health, then it’s not my health that’s important to you,” she said.

 

Elisha Edwardes, 36, said she was at the protest “to support the movement for freedom”. “The more I’ve been educated, the less fearful I am,” she said. “If anything I feel more in control. I’m here to create awareness and I feel that the mass majority of people have been deceived. And I think it’s easier to deceive people than convince them they’ve been deceived.

 

“A lot of the scenarios we’re seeing now don’t make sense and people are not questioning it. The lockdown has affected more people than the virus itself.”

 

The demonstration mirrored an event in Berlin on Saturday, which drew 18,000 coronavirus sceptics before being dispersed by police in the early afternoon.

Before it began on Saturday morning, the protest in the German capital had been the source of much legal and political contestation.

 

Berlin city authorities previously decided to ban the demonstrations out of fear that the protesters would not maintain social distancing or comply with face mask requirements, a move that sparked outrage amongst organisers and supporters. Berlin’s administrative court overturned the ban on the eve of the demonstration.

 

The Metropolitan police issued an open letter to the demonstrators advising that anyone attending a gathering of more than 30 people may be at risk of committing a criminal offence. It was handed to the demonstrators as they marched down Whitehall.

 

“Police officers are with a group of protesters at Whitehall,” the Met wrote on Twitter. “We have already provided the group with a letter explaining they are at risk of committing a criminal offence. We are now asking the group to disperse.”

I know its a broken record on here, but just had a look on Sky News and British Brainwashing Corporation. Nothing, no coverage at all, except going on about the Berlin Police dispersing protests. What a absolutely disgusting bunch of twats we have calling themselves journalists in this country. I am waiting for the usual hit pieces to appear calling everyone right wing lunatic vaccine denying conspiracy theorists.

 

I hope this is the turning point and the protests get bigger and spread world wide, respect to all of you protesting in London today and around the world. 

 

 

The trouble with the MSM is that they are just too predictable.

What you might not get from the vid feeds is that the police helicopter that was hovering over the Thames earlier was clearly called in to circle Trafalgar Square 5 mins before DI came on in an attempt to drown him out and remained overhead throughout his speech. Pathetic. Really pathetic.

🤔

 

Anyone who is honestly able to 'step back' and look at the situation objectively, can clearly see that these speakers aren't denying anything, and that governments HAVE curtailed civil liberties.

Haha! Thanks to the mainstream media, how long has David Icke not been considered a 'celebrity'? 😆

 

Unfortunately world-reknowned economics expert Robert Mugabe, and 'peaceful antisemite' Adolf Hitler were unable to attend this event. 😂

The days of large media organisations being even close to objectively and non-judgementally reporting anything are dead and gone.

 

They're not even pretentending to try here: "a number of speakers, who denied the reality and severity of the pandemic". Horribly unprofessional, leaving aside the usual laughable character assassination, like Piers Corbyn's main gig being "weather forecaster".

If you have not seen it then have a look at "Age of truth T.V"> On U-Tube. A video streamed two days ago with a woman Claire Edwards. Sorry I am not teccy enough to be able to download/upload/ move things from one device/site to another. It is well worth having a look and could be removed from u-tube soon.

Absolutely. Ignorance is bliss, don't know if you've seen the Matrix but the exact same line is in that. Staying comfortable is tempting but even if you choose that route its only going to last so long. I think for years people have had the option to have a career and focus on just rasing their family, getting a nice house etc as an aim but that time is coming to an end.

 

I think you have to be a bit tactful about what you say to people though as getting too deep into it too fast will likely get you a bad reaction. It's hard but I think you've got to judge how much everyone is willing to listen, and if they're not able at the moment to go to far into its not helpful. Planting that seed of doubt is the aim, so you've got to meet people halfway to an extent. 

 

 

Absolutely, I agree. When I was talking to him telling him about stuff, he would eventually reply telling me that I was scaring him. lol. To which I would reply with, it's not intention but you asked so I responded to the question. A lot of people have questions that they are not going to like the answers to. But we cannot continue to avoid it because that's how it gets worse and how we get to where we are now.

 

I met a girl yesterday who is awake and very excited to discuss these topics, she was absorbing what I and a friend were briefly telling her, and then we exchanged numbers, so we may have made a new friend yesterday who is awake and receptive to learning more. She offered to give us a hug, she was not social distancing and she was not wearing a mask. People like her keep the hope alive.

Bang on there. We call him the lizzard in our house. I keep waiting for his tongue to slip out his mouth. He is as cold as ice when he talks and it's chilling just listening to him.

They are just taking the piss out of us constantly. Rubbing salt in the wounds and laughing at just how much they can take the piss and get away with it.

The Cabal Covid breifing must have read like this....

 

"The Chief Medical adviser during the Covid scam MUST look half dead and talk like he is a serial killer. If the sheep buy into that then we are good to roll with the scam. Also tell them that we must shut the pubs so the kids can return to school. That will really confuse them...mugs"!

The Daily Mail have turned the comments off on their article about today's protest. There were several thousand and the majority were positive to the cause.👍

 

I noticed the positive comments too - didnt catch them turning comments off.

That was a good turn out in trafalger Sq.

It represents a start!

There is a complete media blackout for the most part on anything newsworthy.

Berlin looked good with more numbers than before it seems and continuing into the night - I would be interested in the true numbers, not those projected by the msm.

A quick scan of youtube shows many simultaneous protests going on all over the world and I suspect these are all just the start if governments do not come to heel and cease their lunacy and intentionally incomprehensible policies.

If they do not serve us (&we know they dont!) Then their existence is pointless and they should end.

Some photos of the Berlin protest. It looks huge!

 

I came across a rumour on social media yesterday that up to 5 million protestors were expected and that they will not leave until the government resigns. Even if this isn't entirely true, hats off to the Germans for leading the way in terms of civil disobedience.

Yeah it's sad. Most common reaction is keep that shit away from me and let me carry on pursuing my mediocre career and relationships, and just for fun every so often I'll get heated in the pub about the Tories and Brexit and how we need Corbyn in to save the day, remaining blissfully ignorant of how irrelevant it all is on the scale of things.

For a number of reasons a few weeks ago I took the decision to leave my home country of Ireland to go travelling in Europe with no return date. Daily articles like this make me think that date may not be coming any time soon.

 

It seems out of pure populism the Irish government has decided to completely destroy the travel and pubs industries in a bid to keep big tech and the teachers unions sweet, with no end in sight despite the fact that deaths have been very close to 0 for weeks.

 

What I suspect we'll realise as we look back on this in time is that being perceived as handling Covid well is going to count for fuck all when you're trying to revive a crippled economy. I hope for the best for my friends and family but there's no doubt very dark and hard times are coming.

i mentioned gp's prescribing death kits to care homes to an oap.

they started shouting no no no and ran off

 

i've had a neighbour say "i don't want to go into conspiracy theories" yet he must be thinking about it to say it.

when i said to the same neighbour gp's refused to visit care homes,

he paused as he was taken aback, then cognitive dissonance kicked in and he started to make excuses for the gp's

“Anti-Vaxx” has become synonymous with “crank” in the media, who have launched a smear campaign against anyone with “vaccine hesitancy,” implying, we can be persuaded by a “fact check.” However, I am not hesitant at all, I know I will never, willingly, receive another vaccination, now that I know it's constituents and it's manufacturer. I won't elaborate on that because you already know and if you don't, research it before you allow a toxic concoction of poisons to be injected into your child's veins, needlessly.

 

Alfred Russell Wallace said vaccination would be the biggest blight on the 20th Century, but even he could not have forseen the extent of the neurological damage inflicted on people by this ruthless programme of multiple immunisations. They have already branded our youth the 'Covid Generation' when they admit the irreperable harm the scamdemic has caused them, as though it was not anticipated, but the 'Autism Generation' would be more accurate. How conveniently the 'new normal' dovetails into the New World Order.
