Fury as Piers Corbyn protests AGAINST people getting Covid jabs – ‘An object of ridicule'

Fury as Piers Corbyn protests AGAINST people getting Covid jabs – ‘An object of ridicule'

The conspiracy theorist was photographed outside Westfield shopping centre in Stratford, east London. In one picture, Mr Corbyn can be seen addressing those waiting through a megaphone held by another man.

He has been seen numerous times protesting against the lockdown restrictions and vaccine efficacy since the pandemic began.

A photograph of Mr Corbyn outside the Westfield centre was posted by the Twitter account of Guido Fawkes.

It said: “Piers Corbyn with a megaphone telling people not to get vaccinated, spotted by a co-conspirator today at the mass vaccination centre in Stratford.”

A number of social media users hit out at the activist, accusing him of endangering public safety.

One wrote: “Have a word Jeremy Corbyn. I believe in free speech but this will kill people.”

Another added: “Wasn’t there a law against someone knowingly giving another person AIDS?

“Shouldn’t that cover anti-vax against another deadly disease?

“If not, we need to fix that and make this a serious crime, attempted manslaughter.”

In 2020 he was arrested in two anti-lockdown demonstrations, in Trafalgar Square and Westminster, for breach of Covid regulations.

The Government and medical authorities insist mass vaccination is the best way to preserve public health, and reopen the economy.

Data from Public Health England shows the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine is 92 percent effective at preventing hospitalisation from Covid-19.

Research shows many of those currently dying from the virus are either unvaccinated or have only received one jab.

More than 42 million Britons have received at least one coronavirus vaccine dose.

Over 30 million have had both doses, giving them the maximum possible protection.

Boris Johnson has delayed the end of Covid restrictions in England until July 21, to allow more people to get vaccinated.

Over the past couple of weeks Britain has been fighting a surge in cases of the highly transmissible Delta coronavirus variant.

On Saturday the UK recorded over 10,000 new coronavirus cases for the third day in a row.

The last time this figure was reported was February 22, during the heart of the second wave.

Anyone in England aged 18 or over can now book their jab via the NHS website, or by calling 119.

Corbyn speaks at rally where the Israeli flag was set on fire and Hitler placards spotted

Corbyn speaks at rally where the Israeli flag was set on fire and Hitler placards spotted

The Israeli flag was burned at the protest, which organisers claimed was one of the biggest in support of Palestine in British history. They claimed 180,000 people gathered near London’s Victoria Embankment and proceeded to march on Hyde Park.

Here they listened to speeches including by Mr Corbyn and former shadow chancellor John McDonnell.

However, there was outrage on social media after some placards referenced the Nazis or the Holocaust.

One said: “Stop doing what Hitler did to you!”

Another described Israel’s actions as “Holocaust Part 2”.

Video posted online showed flags of Israel, the world’s only Jewish majority state, being burned.

The protest went ahead despite the beginning of a ceasefire in Gaza which ended 11 days of conflict.

At least 230 militants and civilians in Gaza were killed by Israel air strikes whilst 12 civilians died in Israel from rocket attacks.

Violence saw militants launch thousands of rockets towards Israel from Gaza whilst the Israeli’s responded with artillery and air power.

“We have considered the rights of the group to protest and also our duty to keep the wider community safe.”

Other British cities also saw pro-Palestine protests including Manchester, Nottingham and Edinburgh.

A number of prominent writers spoke out following reports of anti-Semitic imagery at some demonstrations.

Dan Hodges tweeted: “OK, I’m going to ask this again.

“When are we going to start treating the racism of the pro-Palestinian campaign groups in the same way we would treat the racism of organisations like the EDL and the BNP?”

Jewish Chronicle editor Stephen Pollard said: “It is perfectly possible to have a pro-Palestinian rally that isn’t full of antisemitic hate speech.

“It’s just that whenever there is one, it is.

“Those who organise the rallies never, ever do anything to stop this.”

The Palestine Solidarity Campaign, which organised Saturday’s march, has said anti-Semitism is not welcome at its demonstrations.

Earlier this week, following reports of anti-Semitic incidents, Mr Corbyn tweeted: “Those who use human rights abuses as licence for antisemitic hate only undermine their cause.

“I have always condemned antisemitism & will continue to.”

Jeremy Corbyn and the event organisers the Palestine Solidarity Campaign have been approached for comment.

Mr Corbyn MP and the Palestine Solidarity Campaign have been contacted by Express.co.uk for comment.
