Since the beginning of January, residents of the British capital and other parts of England have been banned from leaving their homes and have been allowed limited travel.

The demonstration that began at noon in Hyde Park continued in central London, after which, a group of demonstrators returned to the park, where they threw projectiles at the police.

“Many people have been injured as a result of these attacks,” said Lawrence Taylor, commander of policing operations. It is totally unacceptable and sad that the elements charged with enforcing a law designed to protect us all become victims of these violent attacks. ”

On Saturday, about 60 British parliamentarians signed an appeal launched by human rights groups saying that the ban on demonstrations is “unacceptable and most likely illegal.”

Prime Minister Boris Johnson had promised to ease restrictions in light of the improvement of the epidemic situation, and the strict quarantine is supposed to be lifted at the end of this March.
