Anti-Vax Army clashes with police outside Parliament as Ministers plunge London into the third stage
- Thousands of protesters marched in Parliament Square after it was found that London was about to be restricted
- The government put draconian Tier 3 restrictions on the capital after infections skyrocketed last week
- The protest was organized by Piers Corbyn-affiliated StandUp X and saw a series of arrests by police
Anti-Vaxxer protesters have rallied in London amid angry scenes as it was confirmed the capital is under Tier 3 coronavirus restrictions.
The out-of-time march was organized by StandUp X using the encrypted telegram message service preferred by IS extremists.
Over 16,500 people are supporters of the group and scenes in Parliament Square showed how crowds were hit by the police.

It came shortly after it became known that cases of coronavirus infection had emerged in London and the Home Counties were off the scales.
Government sources said the capital was expected to be subject to tight Tier 3 restrictions to control the spread. It was confirmed just hours later.
A protester was holding a placard that read "End the Lockdown" even though the UK's second restriction ended over a week ago.
Pictures of the march showed police arresting demonstrators as they tried to get through the capital.

StandUp X: The "community of the struggle against the new normal"
StandUp X is a newly formed group that is supposed to defy many rules and restrictions imposed by the government to prevent the spread of Covid-19. It describes itself as a "community of struggle against the new normal".
It has already held a number of marches and says it invites everyone to "question the mainstream narrative" to attend its "peaceful rallies".
On its website, StandUp X states that it does not agree to the "illegal and disproportionate measures", arguing that Britain "lives in a state of authoritarian control".
Social distancing measures, the wearing of masks, the enforcement of barriers and "Covid Ghettos" are among the rules and regulations that StandUp X speaks out against.
She also wants to speak out against vaccinations, claiming they violated the principles of the Nuremberg Code – a set of principles of research ethics for human experimentation created as a result of the Nuremberg Trials at the end of World War II.
The code says: "Any preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic medical intervention may only be carried out with the prior, free and informed consent of the person concerned."
StandUp X warns that "compulsory, compulsory, and mandatory" vaccinations will turn humanity into a "mass science experiment" that will benefit billions for pharmaceutical companies and their partners, including Bill Gates.
The group also rejects track and trace methods, describing them as a "digital Gestapo" and an invasion of privacy. She claims the adoption of 5G technology is "deadly to both privacy and health".
