Conspiracy Theorists Converged On Liverpool City Centre In Large Gathering To Spread Conspiracy Theories About COVID-19
Peter Eric Lang Reporting from Liverpool City Centre
Liverpudlian Journalist, Peter Eric Lang, was on-the-scene where protests took place in Liverpool City Centre; spreading COVID-19 conspiracy theories.
The conspiracy theorists were densely crowded together on Church Street in the city's main Shopping District. Approximately more than 100 protesters gathered in a square where Church Street and Parker Street meet.
Cardboard signs taped together and written in marker pens were held up by the protesters, including COVID-19 denial messages such as:
'Please do not feed the fears.'
'It's safer to media distance than social distance.'
'Refuse to Lockdown. Get on with your life. They can't enforce a lie.'
The crowds had multiple speakers telling people not to listen to the Government and not acknowledge the 'lies' that they are being told.
Police where observing the protest, however, were unable to break up the gathering due to getting the balance correct with enforcing the rules and allowing people the 'right to protest'.
When questioned by our reporter if this gathering could undermine the work others are trying to do by social distancing, and following the guidelines. The police acknowledged that this demonstration could possibly lead to an increase in COVID-19 cases in the city.
