Coronavirus lockdown prompts Hove seafront protest
A group of protesters marched along Hove seafront yesterday to protest about the continued coronavirus lockdown.
A woman with a megaphone spoke about our rights being restored and questioned whether people were scared to live their lives.
But the messages carried by the three dozen protesters also mentioned 5G – the latest generation of mobile phone technology.
Some have even tried to link the introduction of 5G infrastructure with the spread of the coronavirus – a theory dismissed by many mainstream scientists.
Other objects of protest included vaccines and the “deep state”.
Last week flyers circulated on social media inviting people to join “mass gatherings” at noon on Saturday on Brighton beach and Bevendean Downs as well as in other parts of the country.
There were no obvious signs of a demo in Brighton although about 30 people are reported to have gathered in Hyde Park, in London.
Sussex Police said: “A small protest took place along Hove seafront on Monday 18 May, monitored by police to ensure that it passed off without any issues.
“The policing role is to maintain law and order and protect public safety.
“We cannot enforce social distancing by law but encourage people to do so.”

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha….. All the normal numpties.. At least they’ve got it off their chests…
Rent a mob. If they weren’t social distancing they should have been arrested.
How were these lunatics allowed across the border into Hove?
‘The right to choose’ to become infected, & infect others means the right to be blind to costs & consequences of personal actions, the right to have psychopathic behaviour indulged, the right to have pure evil intent overlooked. Thank God there were so few.
I don’t mind if they all march together, become infected together and die together as long as they don’t infect the sensible majority. Untermenschen.
Are you a nazi?
Incredibly well said
fear rules, OK?
Do the idiots think this is all a joke there are thousands losing there lives and family losing there loved ones there is always a few that just don’t care so I feel they need a reality check the ONLY way they is social distancing the sooner they listen and do it the better just think of family and friends also very missed loved ones who have died lately or is that to hard to grasp
Some punctuation needed, i’d say.
Punctuation, and it’s “their”, not ” there”….
With rights come responsibility bit these people don’t like that part.
I can only assume none of the protesters have lost anyone to COVID-19. Let’s hope none of them catch it from joining this protest.
Darwinism in action
These people who think that 5G causes the Covid Virus , are they not aware that the masts emit Microwaves so would acy=tually cook and kill the virus. Maybe someone could mention this to them 🙂
Horrid people got nothing better to do
Sweden had no lockdown at all, less deaths than U.K. per capita
Japan had no lockdown and 800 deaths.depaote busiest cities on the planet Tokyo etc.
ONS says 44000 thousand excess deaths from 2014-2015 winter seasonal flu. No one batted an eyelid
But hey, let’s all stay indoors until no one ever dies again !
Kye, would you like to comment again, now that Sweden has the highest death rate per capita in the world over the last week?
