Kathmandu : Protests erupted across the UK on Saturday against a lockdown imposed by the British government to stop the Covid-19 infection.
Nineteen people were arrested during the protests, including Pierce, the brother of former opposition Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Demonstrators in various parts of the UK have protested against the lockdown, saying it violates civil rights and is illegal.
An unidentified woman wearing a mask took part in the protest holding a sign that said “stop violating our human rights”.
The protests occurred on the first weekend since Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a slight loosening of England’s lockdown.
A total of 34,466 people have died in the United Kingdom and 236,711 cases were registered. The country has been in lockdown since March 23.
