The brother of the former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn got arrested in Hyde Park Saturday during an anti-lockdown protest.
According to The Guardian, Piers Corbyn was yelling conspiracy theories in a megaphone in the park in front of about 50 protesters.
According to Corbyn as quoted by The Guardian, COVID-19 is a “pack of lies to brainwash you and keep you in order”, “vaccination is not necessary”, “5G towers will be installed everywhere”, and “5G enhances anyone who’s got illness from Covid, so they work together” – whatever that means.
The protest was held on the first weekend when government eased restrictions in lockdown.
According to Reuters, around 50 people gathered in Hyde Park. Some of them refused to “disperse” and 19 got arrested, including Corbyn.
