#AceNewsReport – June.28: Anti-lockdown and climate change demonstrations took place on Saturday in Westminster, Lambeth and Southwark alongside some smaller protests: Arrests were made on suspicion of breach of the peace, assault on police, and in connection to a previous assault, the Met Police said.
#AceDailyNews reports that on Saturday people protested across parts of the capital over anything that took their fancy be it climate change, lockdown or whatever they do not agree with or does not allow them to get their own way, as MET officers who should be fighting crime on the streets make a small number of arrests on suspicion of ‘breaching the peace’
Three protesters were arrested during a day of demonstrations across London, the Met Police said.
Some protesters were seen throwing tennis balls at the Houses of Parliament.
One protester, who did not wish to be named, said: “They have little messages on them. Most of them are not very nice.”

The pandemic put a stop to protests, but today campaigners came out in force.It didn’t matter your cause, all groups mixed and chanted alongside each other. Thousands came to Regent Street bringing placards, flags and familiar chants. Police closed off the roads allowing marches to pass through the capital, but some vehicles were stopped in their tracks. Officers made their presence known but stood back allowing events to take place.
Climate protesters Extinction Rebellion said one of the raids took place at the Antepavilion centre – an arts and architecture charity.Extinction Rebellion said an art installation of several bamboo structures, used in the group’s blockade of the Broxbourne printworks in September, was confiscated. The structures were on display after winning an Antepavilion award.A spokeswoman said: “As far as we are aware, those arrested have no connection to the protest last September or to Extinction Rebellion.”Four more members were arrested at the Extinction Rebellion arts factory, the campaign group added.Getty ImagesAnti-vaccine and anti-lockdown protesters are marching through central LondonExtinction Rebellion held a Kill the Bill protest alongside the anti-lockdown march.
The demonstration was prompted by the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill, which proposes to give police in England and Wales more power to impose conditions on non-violent protests, including those that are deemed too noisy or a nuisance.
MET: Demonstrations conclude with three arrests in central London today
Gold Commander of the operation, Chief Superintendent Karen Findlay said: “There were a number of demonstrations throughout London today all of which have now come to a conclusion.
“Officers have been proactive throughout the week in the lead in to today’s events to engage, and this has continued throughout the course of today with both protest organisers, demonstrators and local communities to minimise disruption to Londoners.
“The significant majority of those protesting today engaged in a positive manner with our officers.
“We did experience small pockets of antisocial behaviour in Whitehall which involved missiles being thrown at officers, but these were dealt with quickly and effectively.
“Three arrests were made in total for breach of the peace, assault on police and an individual being wanted for a previous assault.
“Three officers received minor injuries through the course of the day but all remain fit and well. I am grateful to the command team, all our officers and those who attended to protest in central London for achieving a positive outcome”
