Arrests Made in London as Anti-Lockdown Protesters Gather Near Trafalgar Square

Several arrests were made in London on November 5 near Trafalgar Square as anti-lockdown and Million Mask March protesters gathered in opposition of new lockdown rules, local media reported.

London police deemed the gathering unlawful, and urged protesters to go home as the country remains in a health crisis with rising COVID-19 cases.
