Jeremy Corbyn's brother Piers was arrested for the second time in 2021 during an anti-lockdown protest in London's Hyde Park.
73-year-old Corbyn was among 17 people arrested for violating health and safety regulations during the demonstration at Speaker & # 39; s Corner in Hyde Park on January 2.
A crowd of between 200 and 300 people gathered to protest the lockdown restrictions and the restriction of their civil liberties.
It came after Corbyn was fined and arrested on New Years Day for leading an anti-lockdown protest on New Years Eve near the London Eye in the center of the capital.
Corbyn, the brother of former Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn, published a video of the so-called "NYE Party of Parties" on his Twitter feed and proclaimed: "TOTAL SUCCESS!" #NYEPartyofParties by London Eye.

The conspiracy theorist has been arrested at least five times since the coronavirus pandemic began and has been fined more than £ 10,000 in total.
