Anti-Mask Protest Tries To Spread Misinformation About COVID-19 In Liverpool City Centre
A small group of 'Anti-Mask' & COVID-19 Conspiracy Theorists took to the streets of Liverpool City Centre to try and spread misinformation and demand people remove their masks in the Liverpool City Region's main shopping district. Members of the protester group where seen shouting abuse at pedestrians wearing masks as per Government advice, as well as per the advice from the WHO (World Health Organisation) and senior UK health advisors.
The small protest of approximately 20 people holding cardboard signs stating they will not wear masks started on Dale Street outside Liverpool Town Hall at around 4pm on Saturday 8th August, led by individuals trying to communicate to the crowd huddled together through a megaphone. The protesters then proceeded through the outdoor food and drinks area in Castle Street and then down Lord Street towards Central.
'To be blunt with numbers, the death toll so far in the UK alone, is 46,566. That surpasses Goodison Park's stadium capacity by almost 7,000.'
A number of pedestrians were shocked and confused with several laughing at the behaviour of the COVID-19 conspiracy theorists shouting at members of the public.
The anti-mask protesters were aggressively shouting 'take them off' at pedestrians on the street and trying to intimidate people into following their demands.
The protesters claimed that COVID-19 is a 'conspiracy' and they 'do not want to be part of the system.' They also claimed that any vaccine is the Government trying to 'poison them'. Some protesters were seen with their children also holding the makeshift 'anti-mask' signs.
Despite their message being that you should not follow the Government rules and not be part of the system, they were more than forceful in trying to intimidate people to abide by their rules and misinformed ideology through abusive language. Their actions can put lives at risk and any misinformation they spread could be detrimental to the public's health. The Government advice is to wear a mask as explained on their website.
